Founder & CEO
“I love the challenge of working with dynamic client teams, pushing myself to create a better company, and that every day is unlike any other.”
Before forming J.Scott Marketing, Julia worked as a newspaper reporter, contributing to a Pulitzer Prize and starting a website that was featured in the Wall Street Journal, Good Morning America, NPR, and more. Through these adventures, she discovered and mastered many marketing and communications solutions that her team now offers to clients. Julia relishes the unique challenge of building relationships with each of her clients and their teams and is proud that 75% of our partnerships continue beyond the initial contract.
When Julia is not taking charge for her clients, she loves to be in the woods, grow (some of) her own food, and wake up early.
Listening to clients and the team. Natural curiosity. Learning something new from everyone she meets.

Lead Editor, Content and Messaging
“I love finding just the right words for clear, compelling messaging because no two stories are the same.”
Julie is our writer and editor extraordinaire. She helps our clients turn their stories into clear, compelling messages that invite their audience to take action. She holds us to high standards when it comes to the written word, but we’d argue that she’s the friendliest grammar grouch you’ll meet. Communication is her forte, and she has taught us all to be better communicators, too. As a former photojournalist, she has a keen eye for photography.
When Julie is not enlightening the world to the finer points of good grammar, you’ll find her in a campervan in the woods with her family. She has competed nationally in Ultimate Frisbee.
Finding the bright side in every situation. Meeting deadlines no matter what (“It’s only a flesh wound!). Listening so well that you want to tell her all your secrets.
Finding a bargain.

Social Media Marketing Manager
“I enjoy the continuous learning that comes with working in social media. If there is a challenge, I get excited to find the solution.”
Celeste, our driven marketing manager, brings a creative visual eye, an infectious energy, and a collaborative spirit to our team. She relishes making connections personally and professionally, and watching creative partnerships unfold. A great day at work for Celeste is filled with innovative strategizing and staying on top of ever-changing social media trends so that clients don’t have to.
When she’s not at her desk, Celeste likes to clear her mind with a trail run, peruse the farmers market, or make a playlist for the perfect day (hello, Harry Styles!).
Building lasting relationships. Making you feel after five minutes of conversation like you’ve known her for years. Learning new tricks.
Rewatching her favorite shows and movies.
