Julie came to FSU after working a couple of years in CRM and at a state job doing historical research. For her master's thesis, she mapped use-wear patterns on bone tools and correlated patterns of tool use with aspects of tool shape. While completing her MA, she worked at the National Park Service's Center for Southeastern Archaeology. Julie is now an archaeologist for Florida's Public Lands Archaeology at the Bureau of Archaeological Research. At BAR, she is in charge of archaeological permits for work on state lands, Archaeological Resource Management Training, and dugout canoes. She continues to entertain her research interests in experimental archaeology, shell middens, the Archaic period, and organic technology.
