Julie Derry is a former Senior Marketing Executive and E-Commerce pioneer with over 25 years of experience leading the Digital Experience for large retailers such as Harry & David, REI, Guitar Center and See’s Candies. In 2015, Julie left the corporate world and spent a year searching for a career opportunity where she could make a real difference in people’s lives.

As a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA), Julie helps families find assisted living, independent living, memory care and in-home care. Her passion for serving the aging adult population is only exceeded by the satisfaction she experiences upon successfully helping her clients achieve peace of mind.

She is on the Board of Directors and the Vice Chair for Oasis Lifelong Adventure and on the Board of Directors for Glenner Centers.
