Julie Cole

Office Manager

Where and when did you get started with YFC?
I started in Sioux City as a volunteer at The Underground around April, 2014.

What is your current position and what do you do?
I am the Office Manger and Donor Care Specialist/Salesforce Manager.

How did you get called to this ministry?
While I was dating Jim, I started volunteering. Then the opportunity came to be on staff and have had no zero regrets. 

How would you describe your family?
We have a blended family with kids of all ages. I have one daughter Ashley (husband Ryan) who have three children, Calliyah, Bella and Kelton. So along with Jim's 4 children, 4 grandchildren and one great grandchild, that is alot of kids! So, when I married Jim, my family tripled in size....and still room to grow.

What are some things you like to do outside of work?
I enjoy reading, puttering around in the yard and movies with lots of popcorn. And I like to travel.

What is something interesting that few people know about you?
I could watch old comedies and musicals all day!

What is (are) your favorite sports team?
About the only sport I really watch is football. And I don't have a favorite team right now!!

What is (are) your favorite foods?
Jim and I both like to cook (both having worked in the food industry) so we really eat well!! But some favorites are anything that Jim makes in the smoker, pasta with lighter sauces, fresh fruits and vegetables and almost anything chocolate. Oh, I forgot....potato chips!

What is (are) the most extreme place you have traveled to?
I am not an extreme travel person but I have been to southern Italy. My luggage was delayed for two days, so that was extreme..especially for those I was traveling with.
