People Operations Lead

“There’s power in allowing yourself to be known and heard, in owning your unique story, in using your authentic voice. And there’s grace in being willing to know and hear others.” – Michelle Obama

I am the People Ops Lead at Galois, which means my focus is on supporting our people across their entire Galwegian experience so they can focus on finding joy and success at work. Nothing brings me more joy than seeing people growing, learning, and having fun along the way. My favorite thing about Galois is our radical commitment to collaboration and transparency, tied with being an employee-owned company.

In my free time, I enjoy long walks around Portland’s neighborhoods, relaxing at home with coffee on the front porch, and spending time with my family and dog.


Prior to joining Galois, Julie served in HR and People Operations roles in the professional services and software technology industries. Before growing her career in the people space, she was an information management consultant and to this day, remains passionate about good records management.  
Julie attended the University of Houston, where she earned her degree in Communications.
