Julia joined the Wyoming Outdoor Council in 2012. She engages in public land-use planning and works on campaigns to protect Wyoming’s special landscapes, key wildlife habitats and corridors, and significant historical and cultural sites. Julia also serves on the board of the Alliance for Historic Wyoming and on the Bureau of Land Management’s resource advisory council for Wyoming. She was born and raised in southwest Wyoming, and graduated from the University of Wyoming in 2006 with a bachelor’s degree in English. Julia previously worked as an environmental journalist in Pinedale and then as an environmental educator in Jackson and Pinedale. In 2010, she completed a master’s degree in Environmental Studies at Prescott College where her thesis research focused on western Wyoming ranching and the language used to express attachment to place. In 2012, she completed a second master’s degree in American Studies and Environment and Natural Resources at UW; her thesis research there focused on the community of Pinedale and social responses to natural gas development. Based in Lander, Julia and her family get out onto dirt roads and trails as often as possible.
Julia will represent the Wyoming Outdoor Council at the SHIFT Summit’s Marketplace on Friday, Oct. 14 at 1:45 p.m.
