Julie joined the Space Unlimited Board in the summer of 2017.
She has worked in the media – specifically in digital content – for many years, in senior leadership roles at the BBC, the Walt Disney Company and in a range of small media companies. Julie is now based at Glasgow Caledonian University where she is leading an EU-funded digital project to connect social innovators in South Africa with their peers around the world and to academia. She also leads GCU’s membership of Ashoka U, a global network of universities committed to social enterprise research, teaching and community engagement.
It is this exposure to social innovation and her involvement with young people which brought Julie to Space Unlimited. She is really excited to be part of such a ground-breaking initiative and such a dynamic team.
In her spare time, Julie enjoys walking her dog, Bunty, travelling and exploring the café scene in Glasgow, in search of the perfect espresso.
