Julie Headshot
Interim Manager

Julie currently serves as the Interim Director for the County of Santa Clara Office of Women’s Policy.  Following a nearly two-year departure to help start up The Office of Gender-Based Violence Prevention, she returned in June 2021 to lead Women’s Policy in its mission to elevate and empower women and girls. With a focus on gender equity, she has trained and facilitated work groups on human trafficking, pay equity and youth leadership.  Her high-quality work and can-do attitude serve as an anchor for the collaborative nature necessary to make systemic change.   

Julie’s strong commitment to public service runs deep and is demonstrated by her long history of civic engagement.  She currently serves as Chair for both Somos Mayfair and San Jose Jazz.  She has been recognized by her peers for her community service, receiving the 2013 La Familia Award from the Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley, The Sisterhood Award from the Latina Coalition of Silicon Valley in 2019, and was recently one of 18 participants from the state of California to be named a Rise Up California Leader to improve gender equity and advance social justice. 

Julie earned her bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies and her master’s degree in Public Administration from San Jose State University.  She resides in East San Jose with her husband, Len, and three children, Lenny, Amanda and Lucas.
