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.
