Julia joined ZRG Partners in 2017 as Managing Director in the Healthcare & Life Science sectors. She began her career in healthcare in 1995 working several years in both home health and the hospital industry through contract nursing, before being recruited to a professional search firm to specialize within healthcare executive search.
Julia’s prior experience in clinical staffing within the healthcare industry prepared her for this next phase of her career in healthcare executive search, where she was able to communicate her understanding of clinical staffing & medical terminology when speaking with C-level executives/physicians about both their own operational challenges and those that their mid-level managers/directors faced. Through relationship building & experience over the last fifteen plus years, Julia learned how to solve some of those issues through proper org structures, detailed job description, consulting and ensuring success through integration across their system. This is what has led her to ZRG, the opportunity to provide her clients with a quality driven process through technology, data & analytics combined with her industry knowledge. Julia has a successful history of creating long term partnerships with clients of over 10 plus years & she has many cherished friendships within her industry that she values deeply.
