Julie Allstrom, 2012 BIS graduate, joined the BIS Program Office as Student Services Manager in March 2014. She previously worked in Mason’s Human Resources and Payroll Department.
Julie’s interdisciplinary coursework in Human Resources Management and Communication led to her BIS concentration, Aging Workforce Studies. In her capstone research, Julie analyzed the results of postsecondary education completion on older workers’ employment situations. Before graduation, she received research grants from Mason’s OSCAR to develop a feasibility study of employment in not-for-profit organizations in Northern Virginia. The Council of Undergraduate Research (CUR) published Julie’s article “Advice to Older Students” in its Spring 2013 issue, which is available on bis.gmu.edu.
Julie and her husband Eric have made their home in Leesburg, VA for the past 15 years. Their five daughters and seven grandchildren live in northern Virginia, Atlanta, GA and Austin, TX.
