Grief Support Services, West Metro
350 South 5th Street
Minneapolis, MN 55415
On staff since 2007, Julie has helped hundreds of our clients navigate through the early days after a traumatic death of a loved one. She is an experienced grief support facilitator and guide for our volunteers. We feel that it was no coincidence that Julie’s first day of employment coincided with the Interstate-35W bridge collapse, calling for swift action to support its many victims. Julie became a volunteer at Survivor Resources (then VIPI) in 1995 while working in both business administration and in social services. Having experienced the loss of her husband to suicide in 1987, she is well-versed in the unique needs of our clients. Julie earned her bachelor degree from St. Catherine University. She is involved in her local church and enjoys spending time with her two sons.
