I am pleased to assist The Kinsey Institute in their important work in global public health. The prevention of AIDS and support for new mothers are two issues that I especially care about.

It was a real challenge to find a person who, in addition to being supportive of The Kinsey Institute’s mission, really understood the complexities of a university setting. Julie was a perfect match for both those criteria.
