Julia has over 30 years of experience in business as a business owner, manager, administrator, and educator. Her area of expertise is marketing and communications. As far as technology, she admits to being a little “geeky” and has always been fascinated with computers, and IT logic. As the internet became more prominently used by businesses, she paid attention to technology and has thrived in the challenge to continually learn and adapt her marketing knowledge to keep current with the industry advancements. An avid learner, she became keenly aware of potential security vulnerabilities and sought to learn more about data management, network security, and managing personal data shared between programs. With both strong skills in communications and IT, she understands how to connect the dots of the tools ever-evolving online, and use them to obtain digital marketing and sales goals.
Through her company, Golden Services Group, LLC, she has conducted over 19 years of research spanning a variety of conversations and industries to confirm that adjustments have to be made in how brands target and address their potential customers to be more consistent and effective. She began teaching courses at a local college in addition to working directly with business owners, teaching them, and consulting with them to grow their companies.
Today, Julia remains an avid learner of both technology, human behavior, and digital communications and uses the internet to track and evaluate data and report results. She works closely with professionals and brands to manage the creation of communication systems that track the performance of digital conversations with both B2B and B2C audiences. She sits on the Web Development and Multimedia Advisory Board at St. Charles Community College where she consults on the curriculum needed to prepare students for jobs and co-teaches their capstone class to provide project management oversight on a web design project as well as helps prepare students for entering the workforce. She often mentors students on seeking jobs in Technology, particularly Cyber Security, and also speaks publicly on topics related to Cyber Security Preparedness, Bridging the Gap in Technology Jobs and Education, Human Behavior and Marketing, and Effective Digital Communications.
