Senior Public Policy Specialist

Lobbyist, Developmental / Intellectual Disabilities (DD/ID), DD Business Managers Forum, Community / Criminal Justice, Arts & Culture, CT Nonprofits Week at the Capitol, Annual Conference.

When Julia joined the CT Community Nonprofit Alliance team in March 2002, she provided advocacy and support to the Developmental Disabilities Division, the Business Managers’ Forum and the Connecticut Youth Services Association. Since that time, responsibilities have evolved to also include the Community Justice and Juvenile Justice Divisions. In addition, Julia provides support to the Arts and Culture member organizations of the Association. Each Division provides unique rewards, opportunities and challenges. In her present role, Julia enjoys significant interaction with nonprofit executives, fiscal directors, state agency officials and legislators. Among her favorite interactions: securing the Annual Conference Keynote.

Prior to joining the CT Community Nonprofit Alliance team, Julia’s experience included many years in the fields of disabilities, nonprofit development and the arts. Julia attended Carnegie-Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, with a Fine Arts double major. She served as Executive Director to Very Special Arts Connecticut following several years of service on the Board of Directors.

In her spare time, Julia developed and administers the annual ‘James Wilcox Memorial Award’, sponsored in part by the Ragged Mountain Foundation. The annual climbing award serves as a catalyst for the future adventures and expeditions of others on big walls throughout the world.
