Julie was extensively involved in issues and projects that cut across the financial regulatory agencies, and has significant experience working with the Federal Reserve, Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and Securities and Exchange Commission. She earned her BA at Goddard College, where she was a classmate of David Mamet, and her JD at Antioch.

As general counsel, he served as the principal legal and policy advisor to the chairman and board of directors regarding the legislative development and later implementation of regulatory and policy components of the Dodd-Frank Act, including its SIFI resolution, living wills, capital markets and capital, and structured finance requirements.
