Led the IDS Chicago Designing Team in the charity efforts to redecorate two rooms at Little Angels, a home for severely disabled children in Elgin, IL. IDS Chicago was recognized nationally for their project and won the inaugural 1st Place Impact Award since their project “impacted” not only the angels that live there, but their families and the staff as well.
Lead Designer on US Vets common areas IDS/ART Volunteer Project in Phoenix in May 2017. These areas were devoid of any furnishings that would make the space feel more like a home or a space anyone would want to just hang out in. Through fundraising efforts and generous donations from many companies, Julie was able to make a decorating plan for these areas and transformed them from industrial looking bare boned rooms into welcoming, colorful rooms.
