BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Julie Manning spent most of her school years in Aspen. The summer of 2018 she returned with her family to live in the Roaring Fork Valley full time, leaving the urban environment of Seattle. The oldest of Julie’s three children – Olivia, has attended Ascendigo’s summer adventures camp for several years and will now benefit from the services offered in the valley. It’s the gratification of seeing Olivia’s accomplishments at camp that drives Julie’s passion for fundraising so other autism families can benefit from Ascendigo’s programs. Julie has worked tirelessly on the Ascendigo Blue Aspen event committee the last six years and spearheaded other fundraisers, as well.
Julie attended Santa Monica College then studied abroad in Florence, Italy and Paris, France.
