Julie Shepard

Senior Manager of Development and Events

The University of Pittsburgh was the source of both of Julie’s degrees: a Bachelor’s degree in Communications and Rhetoric, and a Master’s in Public Policy and Management from the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs. After a 20-year career in higher education, she joined The Pittsburgh Promise in 2012 because of its mission and the ability to work closely with young people. As a complement to her work at The Promise, Julie tutors adults through the Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council.
