Julie Wasem

Julie Wasem currently works as a Real Estate Associate Broker for Woods Bros Realty.She moved to Aurora right out of college with her first career as an Extension Educator in 1976. Her favorite part of Hamilton county is the people, the city of Aurora, the Courthouse, the small communities that stay vibrant, and the progressive community that it is. When asked why she wanted to join the Chamber Board she said, "I wanted to see Aurora and Hamilton County stay competitive and vibrant. We need to support local businesses and continue to offer activities to keep families involved and enjoy where they live. However, it takes working together and the Aurora Chamber of Commerce is a perfect place to start. Together, through the Aurora Chamber of Commerce, we can centralize our businesses, our talents and can capture the interests and economy of a broader base."
