Julie is a doctorate trained psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP) with previous experience as a teacher and pediatric nurse.  Born and raised in Minnesota, Julie’s work with young people began as a wilderness guide for teens. After an initial bachelor’s degree in Chemistry at Pomona College, Julie came to the Rogue Valley for a teaching position at St. Mary’s School (1999-2004, middle and high school math/science).  Ongoing interests in brain chemistry and pediatric/adolescent mental health led Julie to a second bachelor’s degree in nursing, pediatric work as a registered nurse (RN) at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center, additional RN work within adult inpatient psychiatry, and eventually a Doctor in Nursing Practice (DNP) degree from Rush University.  As part of her DNP-PMHNP graduate work, Julie trained directly with David Callanan and Devin Smith at CFPC, with particular emphasis on kids and adolescents. Her graduate project- a staff training intervention within inpatient adult psychiatry- was recently published in the Journal of Psychosocial Nursing and Mental Health Services.

Julie’s family loves spending time outdoors in the Rogue Valley, biking, rafting, skiing, hiking, and camping throughout this beautiful region.  When not exploring new spots in the Pacific Northwest, they often visit extended family in Minnesota and Maine. Julie is excited to join the CFPC team with an emphasis on assessment, diagnosis, medication management, counseling, and patient-centered health promotion for young people ages 5-21.
