Julie – Director, Attractions Operations
Julie began her career at Universal Orlando as an Attractions Attendant. When she started, Julie didn’t anticipate she would end up with the career she has now. She had studied biology in college, and took a job at Universal Orlando just to assist with the transition to the working world after finishing her degree. However, once here, she realized how much she enjoyed the job and dedicated herself to doing the best she could.
Julie’s hard work was recognized by her management and led to opportunities as a Team Lead, Temporary Supervisor, and ultimately, a promotion to a full-time Supervisor role. Julie served as Supervisor of several venues before she was promoted to an Attractions Manager and then General Manager over multiple attractions. She would hold the position of Sr. Manager, Attractions Operations, before being promoted to her current role of Director.
Best Career Decisions
At the beginning of her career, Julie wanted to learn and develop skills that would prepare her for future promotional opportunities. She did so by actively looking for new opportunities and focusing on lateral growth in her own department (e.g. becoming an on-the-job trainer, Team Lead, etc.). She also reached out to her leadership, letting them know she wanted to learn and develop new skills, and by doing so made them aware of not only her aspirations, but also the contributions she was making. Her managers then pushed her to achieve more and face new challenges, helping her to build a strong foundation for future leadership roles.
“Growth comes down to knowing your line of business, not being afraid to ask questions, and building a network you can rely on.”
