Julie has worked for the City of Springfield since 2017.
What are three words to describe the City of Springfield?
Bustling, lively and vivacious.
What’s something you’ve learned since working for the City?
There’s a lot more work that goes on behind the scenes than people realize.
Why do you do what you do?
I want to be challenged every day, I want to never stop learning, and I want to feel like I’m helping someone whether that be an engineer, architect, or citizen needing more information.
What’s the best part of your job?
Meeting tons of different people and learning something new every day. What are you passionate about? I’m always trying to learn something new and strive to be better at work and at life.
Do you work to live or live to work? Why?
Both. I really like that my work enables me to see the inner working of the City so I get excited to go to work each day. But I also love all my hobbies, friends, and activities outside of work.
What do you admire about this organization?
That everyone is honest and reliable, even when no one is watching.
What’s something that Springfield as a city should strive for?
Improve community morale by highlighting the work we have done and the exciting City projects we have coming up that will help Springfield become a better place to live.
