Julie feels lucky to care for our great generation of seniors at Inver Glen Senior Living. A Wisconsin native, Julie grew up in a small town and attended University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh on a music and education scholarship. In 1983, she started working at a small nursing home and was eventually promoted to care conference and family coordinator. After relocating to the Twin Cities, Julie joined Southview Acres in 1999 and has been with Inver Glen since it was just a pile of dirt!
As Residence Director, Julie appreciates the vast scope of her responsibilities at Inver Glen. From filling apartments and training staff to spending time with tenants and their families, every day is full of new challenges. Julie especially enjoys having her grandchildren at work with her via the intergenerational preschool. Our tenants, staff and preschoolers keep Julie grounded and she counts many of them as her mentors and dearest friends!Email Julie (651) 450-0707

Every time I come to see Mom, I feel some apprehension and often cry on the way home. She is a shell, in many ways, of what she used to be. I pray, just bless our time together - and he does.
Today as I was leaving these leaves caught my eye. They had once been something that people would seek out in the fall to appreciate their beauty. They've been blown down in the wind and have disintegrated to a shell. Look, though, now they are intact - all of the veins of life still perfect. I asked a couple of people what they saw in them. "A rotten leaf." To me they are so beautiful in their "earthly imperfection." This to me was one of the many reminders I'm given when things are overwhelming.
Mom is intact and beautiful. Every time I watch you be with her I see it. I am so thankful that you are the one who can look at her as the woman she always was, not a shell, but beautiful as those adornments of youth have faded, sometimes more & more every day.
I love you for it!
