Julie joined LBSC as Development Coordinator in 2007, bringing with her a life-long love of the arts and commitment to volunteerism. Her organizational skills have been honed in a variety of capacities with Girl Scouts, Booster Clubs, local government, public schools, and KKJZ public radio, where she first met Helen Borgers. As granddaughter of mystery writer Dashiell Hammett, Julie worked with Helen to bring the first dramatic production of The Maltese Falcon to the RGT in 2005. She actively supports her grandfather's literary legacy by writing, editing, speaking, and exhibit and event planning. With this background in service and the arts, plus her training in Communications and American Studies at CSULB, Julie will explore new partnerships, fundraising, and development opportunities for LBSC.
