The voice you hear on the phone when you call the IREC Credentialing Program office is that of Julie Fontana. Julie joined the team in early July to serve as the Administrative Assistant for the IREC Credentialing Program. With degrees in both chemistry and education administration, her experience includes medical research in childhood leukemia, industrial research in paper release coatings, and, most recently, more than 10 years experience in secondary school administration. Julie’s strengths are in process and database management and client support. A life-long learner, in 2011 she earned a Master’s degree in administration and policy studies from SUNY Albany. When not in the office you can find her on the local trails and in the pool training for her first triathlon. Julie is based in the Albany, NY, office and can be reached at 518-621-7379 or [email protected].
