Julee graduated with a BFA in Interior Design and a minor in English in 1986. She also studied Art History as a graduate student and participated in a semester abroad to London. From 1984 to 1988, Julee worked in the Advisement Center as a part-time student employee. She has worked as a full-time academic advisor since 1988. In 1994, she was the College of Fine Arts and Communications recipient of the Staff Excellence Award. In 2009, she became the supervisor of the Advisement Center. Julee’s involvement at the university also includes teaching an introductory course in Interior Design. Having taught since fall 1989, Julee finds fulfillment and satisfaction in associating with students from this perspective as well as from an advisement point of view.
Julee values her association with students and has described her dedication to student advisement in the following statement: “In my work, I try to approach each day with patience, kindness, accuracy, wisdom, and insight. As an academic advisor, I recognize that I am in a position to interact with and perhaps influence many people, including office staff, faculty, university employees, administrators, and students. In daily practice, my responsibilities are most specifically directed to students’ academic success and overall experience at BYU. Having been a student myself, I understand just how frustrating and frightening college can be at times, yet it can also be stimulating and rewarding. In my dealings with students, I honestly try to contribute to these positive attributes. If I can become a friend and advocate in the advisement center, I know students will come to see me time after time and hopefully save themselves time and heartache as they pursue their academic goals.”
Julee advises students admitted to the following majors: Acting, Media Arts Studies, Theatre Arts Studies, Theatre Arts Education K-12, Animation, Art Education K-12, Graphic Design, Illustration, Photography, and Studio Arts.
