What Others Say About Julie Wassom

And it doesn’t stop there. Julie is also a superb project manager. She ably managed a complex initiative with nine sites and six consultants and many other vendors as part of our BUILDing Jewish ECE initiative. Julie and her team delivered remarkable results for all nine early childhood centers.”
