My Top 3 Priorities

  • Increase jobs in high output sectors and support our emerging entrepreneur and start-up community
  • INcrease staffing of our police department with a focus on adding a downtown bike/ped unit.
  • Continue to push for more affordable housing and work with the County to address homelessness.



Julie grew up in southern California and she and her husband Mike, moved to Redding in 1989. They have two children and five grandchildren. 


Her education includes a B.S. degree in Genetics from UC Davis, a B.S in nursing from CSU Sacramento, and a Masters in Nursing from UCLA.  Julie has been a Family Nurse Practitioner for 31 years and currently works for Dignity Health Medical Foundation. . 


Julie was elected to the Redding City Council in 2016 and served as mayor in 2019.  She is seeking re-election.  


Julie is a founding member and served on the board of the Redding Area PA/NP Alliance.  She also served at the state level on the board of the California Association of NPs.  She is a graduate of Leadership Redding and served on the City of Redding’s Community Development Advisory Committee that oversees block grant funding for community development.  She also served on the board of Advance Redding that manages the Redding Civic Auditorium, and is a member of Turtle Bay, Friends of the Library, Redding Rotary, Shasta County Arts Council, Shasta Historical Society, Women’s Fund, and Shasta Living Streets.  She currently serves on the board of Bethel School of Technology.


Julie is committed to job creation and public safety.  To become a vibrant economy she intends to create a clear vision around our lifestyle, natural beauty, riverfront, trails and the creative and talented people who live here.  She sees that the root problem of many of our rising social problems is due to chronic economic malaise, and is interested in partnering with business and workforce leaders to create career pathways for our citizens, identify and remove barriers to job growth, and leverage our natural assets to attract skilled workers. In addition, she will work with community leaders to provide needed public safety that not only addresses crime, but underlying mental health issues, substance abuse and homelessness.
