Besides the business aspect of publishing, Julie began to develop her writing skills early in her career by writing a job description for a position that she identified was needed in the company where she worked. The position was also created for her. Grant writing became a talent, as she was awarded several grants while she serving as director of a completely grant-funded community outreach program.
Julie’s writing skills continued to develop as she was responsible for all workforce related proposals and documents for several of the Governor’s advisory councils and commissions. An article she wrote for the National Council of University Research Administrators (NCURA) was published in the March/April 2013 magazine.
The book publishing industry has changed since Fiesta Publishing started in 1994, but the standard and quality of each book published has not. Each book is personally overseen by Julie to ensure that it is personalized to the content, its author and ultimately the reader.
