volunteer coordinator: CAROL SMIthERMAN

Julia's passion for helping others get healthier physically, mentally and spiritually makes her a natural fit at Compassion Community Clinic. When she and her husband Phil moved to the Reno area in 2018, she started looking for ways to break into the nonprofit sector while still running her health coaching practice. That was when a member of her small group at Grace Church Reno informed her of the opportunity to write grants for CC Clinic. Since that time, she had become part of our team. Her favorite part of her job is seeing patients who previously entered the clinic in pain and upset leave joy-filled and smiling. Her past experience ranges from providing journalistic coverage for publications and working with nonprofit organizations in Washington, D.C., Cambodia and the Middle East, to serving as a field representative to a California State Assemblyperson. She has her B.A. from Biola University in Journalism and Integrated Media and considers herself a lifelong student of languages, cultures and religious studies. When not working, Julia is typically at the dog park with her pups Sansa and Arya or taking day trips with Phil.
