Have you ever met someone who can make you feel comfortable right away? If not, you’re in for a treat because Julia is the friendly face you’ll encounter at the eCampus office. She’s great at striking up conversations and fostering a sense of camaraderie. Julia is also a skilled crafter. Don’t hesitate to ask her about her latest embroidery project!

Q: What do you do at eCampus?

A: Here at eCampus, I primarily help manage our front desk and run our test center. In the background, I am also leading the charge in updating our processes within Exam Services to streamline everything for both staff and students.

Q: How do you work with students?

A: My interactions with students include phone calls answering their questions and setting them up with their exams in person. I work hard to help make our center as easy and calm as possible for our students taking exams.

Q: How can students connect with you?

A: I am the first person a student sees when they enter our offices here at eCampus. I am always happy to say hello and strike up a conversation. I will answer literally any question- so ask about anything!

Q: What do you like about working at UAF eCampus?

A: My team is by far my favorite part of working at eCampus. We work together phenomenally and have some pretty funny and interesting conversations. I also like having the opportunity to simultaneously work full-time and work on my master’s degree in School Counseling.

Q: How do you like to start your day?

A: My favorite way to start the day is grabbing drinks for myself and my team from Mocha Dan’s. Before that, I get to spend time with my Golden Retriever Luna and prep whatever craft I am working on throughout the day.

Q: What’s your favorite game to play?

A: I really enjoy playing Rainbow Six: Siege and Destiny 2. I get to play with friends and coworkers often after work, which is a great way to decompress. (Haha, that’s a joke. Anyone who plays Siege knows it is NOT a decompression game).

Q: If you could snap your fingers and be an expert in something, what would it be?

A: Being someone who loves the learning-to-be-an-expert process, I would love to be able to snap my fingers to become an expert at locating people who can help facilitate my learning process of any other thing I want to learn- whether that be baking, crocheting, construction, car maintenance, or whatever else!
