Julie is a native of Southern California but considers Seattle her home. She started in the hospitality industry during her college years as a banquet server for a very reputable catering company in the LA area.. After college she transplanted to Seattle and has never looked back. Staying in the industry she broke into catering sales/event planning at the prestigious Washington Athletic Club. Her next adventure took her to Nordstrom Catering (yes, they did have a catering division) as an Event Coordinator/Sales and promoted to Catering Director. Her last position before joining Pedersen’s Rentals was with McCormick & Schmick’s Catering at the Museum of Flight as an Event Planner working on large scale events for Boeing, Microsoft and national conventions.
Julie is an active member of the local chapters of MPI, ISES and ABC. Julie enjoys working with her customers on their events and feels her strong background in catering helps make every event a success.
When not working, you'll find Julie enjoying Washington wines, shoe shopping and the great outdoors of the Pacific Northwest!
