Born and raised in colorful Colorado, Julie Wisman is a dedicated parent, natural optimist, and habitual volunteer (seriously—that last one should probably be engraved on her headstone). As Project Coordinator, she researches and gathers all the best tools and resources for The Connected Parent’s users.
Julie’s own journey began when her daughter was diagnosed with PCDH19 Epilepsy. Eager to not only provide the best care for her daughter, but also help others facing similar challenges, Julie got involved with the PCDH19 Alliance, where she conducted research to help connect families with the right resources and support groups. Having spent 21 years in this community, Julie knows first-hand how difficult it can be to navigate the system and find the right care. Though it’s been a long road, she’s always optimistic, and the community she’s gained continues to inspire her every day.
A wife and mother of five kids—plus a black lab, husky/shepherd mix, and bearded dragon—Julie enjoys spending time with her family and trying new things: whether it’s frisbee golf, ax throwing, or high tea. When she’s not volunteering or advocating for her community, you can usually find her planning her next party, hitting up the beach, or playing Candy Crush—at which her skills are the stuff of legend.
