About Julie

Background

Julie grew up in Beverly, graduating from Beverly High School in 1997. After high school, she went on to pursue a BA in English and Spanish at Wellesley College (Class of 2001). 


Following graduation, she went on to work as a retail sales manager for several years before pursuing her M.Div. at Harvard Divinity School (Class of 2007). Julie currently serves as one of three ministers at the First Baptist Church in Beverly, a progressive congregation that is committed to social justice and advocacy. 


She moved back to Beverly after the birth of her son, Emmett (now 5), because she wanted him to have the kind of community in which to grow up that she had. Julie knows Beverly, loves Beverly, and cares deeply about Beverly and its people, and is ready to put that passion to work for you.

Why Run?

"Beverly and its people have given so much to me; I want to be able to give back through my time, my commitment, and my hard work as a member of the City Council.


I want to see Beverly continue to grow and thrive; I want to continue to work with community partners and with residents of the City to nurture and enhance our unique downtown; I want to work to support our School Committee as they continue their work of ensuring that our school district is meeting the needs of every student and that it continues at a level of excellence; 


I want to work to ensure that Beverly is affordable for all, including families and seniors who have long called Beverly home and who want to age in place; I want to work together with City leaders and residents to continue to do our part to care for this earth we share; I want to help us continue to come together to keep building a strong and welcoming community, where all people can find a place and find a home; I want to work together to create a community that is strong in its diversity and inclusiveness, that is strong because of all of us, bringing our unique gifts, voices, talents, and skills to bear.


I am running for At-Large City Council because the only thing I love more than this City is its people; and I am ready to put those two loves to work for you."
