ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Julie is Homeword’s homebuyer educator. Often found enjoying Missoula’s Hip Strip, she is happiest puttering around in her garden or capturing one of her cats for a snuggle. The thing she loves most about her work is empowering others to accomplish their financial goals and together building a bright, diverse and vibrant community.
A graduate of the University of Montana, Julie focused on financial literacy education early in her career. She became a certified financial counselor in 2013. Before joining Homeword, she worked at the University of Montana’s Financial Education Program helping students understand the long-term financial impacts of their educational choices and how to repay their student loans. At Homeword her focus remains helping community members understand their financial options and chart courses to achieve their financial goals. Julie is a HUD Certified Housing Counselor, a National Center for Home Ownership Education and Counseling (NCHEC) Housing Counselor, and has been certified for Credit Counseling for Maximum Results.
