Julie manages the City Park Greenhouse and Horticulture program for the City of Denver. She received her degree in Floriculture and Spanish at Colorado State University. Prior to Public sector work, she grew perennials and bedding plants for a large scale local operation, as well as spending 12+ years in the landscape install/maintenance field. While in landscape maintenance, her focus was redesigning spaces to be more water wise, useful, and attractive.
With the City of Denver, she is focused on developing the greenhouse as the horticultural hub while helping the city achieve goals of designing beautiful sustainable spaces. Through the greenhouse, she manages the Citywide Median Renovation crew working to bring back functionality and color into the 30 plus miles of medians in Denver.
When not at work Julie is an avid reader, loves backpacking and hiking, coaching Rugby, and spending time with her family.
