Julie's first electrical engineering job was as an estimator for an electrical contractor in her hometown of Chattanooga, TN. That began in 1975 (more than 30 years ago!) The highlight of that summer was being site manager on the installation of an emergency power system for Chattanooga's vintage theater The Tivoli. Ever since then, she's been involved in engineering power systems--in hardware, software and wetware (6 years in university administration).
