Email: jelert@wisc.edu

Born and raised in Libertyville, IL, Julia comes from a long line of Wisconsin badgers.

Studying alongside her brother and sister while at UW has been the highlight of her college experience. She will be graduating in the spring with a double major in Industrial Engineering and Data Science with a certificate in Computer Science. Julia first found her passion in event planning as the Advancement Assistant for the College of Engineering where she helped coordinate events for student professional development as well as corporate and alumni relations. She then took the position of External Relations Officer for the UW-Madison chapter of the Institute for Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE). This role required her to manage corporate relationships with regional and national engineering firms to plan recruiting events and secure sponsorships. Julia has since found herself in an events director role for nearly all her internships and student organizations. This year as the SCO Events Director, Julia wants to create new opportunities to bring students together from all ends of campus. After graduation, Julia will pursue a career in consulting in Chicago where she will leverage her organization, enthusiasm, and drive in a new way. She will miss spending time at the terrace and being on campus in Madison, but is excited for the new experiences ahead of her.
