Julie Park

FOCUSED, ORGANIZED AND CREATIVE.

Julie’s background has fostered in her a tremendous attention to detail. With 10 years’ experience and a degree in Event Management Julie started her career at the Vice President’s Residence where she was fortunate to be involved in the planning of both social and private events for the Vice President of the United States. Since the start of her career, she has planned a mixture of political, government, and social events from small intimate gatherings to working on the 2008 Republican Convention, attended by thousands. Most recently, Julie acted as the Director of Protocol for the Secretary of Defense.

When Julie isn’t working, or on travel, she can be found completing DIY activities and throwing dinner parties at home for loving friends. Julie lives in Alexandria with her husband and their four children.

From Ash Carter

25th Secretary of Defense

“As Director of Protocol for the Secretary of Defense, Julie Park organized all my events at the Pentagon and in war zones and capitals around the world, making arrangements with national and international leaders and supervising a large uniformed and civilian staff. She always did a perfect job in the most essential and sensitive missions and had the total confidence of me and everyone in the Department.”
