Meet JBS Office Manager Julie DuFranePosted: November 21, 2011
Julie DuFrane has been working for JBS since the headquarters opened in 1989. Julie grew up in Menasha, WI, about 15 minutes away from Appleton. As an undergraduate student she studied education. Before she was able to finish her degree, she moved to Costa Rica where she taught English as a second language to students of all ages.
While in Costa Rica Julie gave birth to one of her four children. As the last original headquarters staff member, Julie truly keeps this office going. She is the glue that holds us all together. Although, one thing that I think we here at the office could do without is, her ability to remind that it is snowing and walking around the office singing, “Let it Snow”!
Fun Fact: Julie and her husband own a restaurant in Menasha named The Weathervane.
