Throughout Julie’s 30-year career, she has been designing and implementing innovative, personalized engagements that educate, connect, motivate, inspire and influence the way people think and act.

An experienced and detail-focused marketing and special events manager for corporate clients (Ford, General Motors, Chrysler, Saab & Subaru), small businesses (Incline Law Group, Tahoe Fitness Loft), and non-profit organizations (IVCBA, JDRF, The Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival, Project MANA, Diamond Peak Ski Education Foundation, City of Sparks) Julie specializes in marketing and strategic event design and management.

She has a track record of sponsorship sales & management, content development, event logistics & fundraising including auction production. She delivers successful brand/organization engagements with outcomes that have helped her clients achieve their goals, whether that’s raising funds (or friends), generating awareness, driving sales, or event registrations.

Fundraising is an art form and it takes a lot of creativity and persistence to raise money for a Ski Foundation. Julie brought tremendous energy and was able to implement a number of novel ways to engage the Ski team families and community as a whole. Our goal when she started was to create energy and interest with the newer members and families. In a nutshell create an Incline Village connected community. This goal/vision came to fruition during Covid where we saw our ski team members and families connect and engage. ~ Cameron Lim, President, DPSEF

Truly – best year ever, soooooo organized and seamless! ~ Kristen M., IVCBA Local Heroes 4th of July Parade Committee

I had the pleasure of working with Julie when I was the program director at a small food pantry/nonprofit.  We were incredibly under resourced and unable to hire a full time, permanent development director. We hired Julie on a contract basis and no permanent employee could have served us as well. Julie introduced an incredibly successful fundraising and development strategy. Due to her attention to metrics, the implementation of a sound strategic plan and a capital campaign, revenue increased, and events were extremely successful. Furthermore, her relationship building skills and innovative approach to stewardship paved the way for a much more efficient and effective approach to development. She was mindful of our budget and created a highly effective plan to work within its confines. Her kindness and sense of humor are added benefits. I’m now employed at a much larger nonprofit, yet I call her regularly for advice and direction on development, special events and marketing. I cannot recommend Julie highly enough; she will be an asset to any organization fortunate enough to work with her. ~ Miren Hower, Past Director, Food Services, Sierra Community House (Project MANA)

You were the best allocation of funds that we made. Wish we would have had u from the very beginning. Would have made my life a lot easier. Once u got involved everything became a total breeze. Thank u for that! ~ Mrs. F. (Bride)

Julie’s knowledge and professional expertise are invaluable when it comes to building a successful fundraising event or campaign. She formulates the overall strategy as well as the tactical steps necessary to achieve the desired results. While my experience with Julie has been on the non-profit side, I truly believe her skill set is easily transferable to the general business sector. Julie also has strong interpersonal and communication skills, as she is heavily relied upon to promote JDRF to all the various stakeholders. Julie is also extremely dedicated and hardworking as I personally have experienced working events with her in the wee morning hours or late into the evenings. ~ Janet Smagala, Event Committee Chairperson

Thanks again for everything!! Everyone {including my new husband} raved about how amazing you were. ~ Mrs. L. (Bride)

Julie’s a planner, a big thinker and full of follow through. Her innovative ideas look to the heart of an organization’s mission and are always goal oriented. She’s also great to work with and maintains a great sense of humor regardless of the situation. ~ Kristen Hackbarth, Past PR Partner

Julie is a consummate professional and creative to boot. She is a detail-oriented event planner and account manager. And her sense of humor and calm-in-a-crisis personality is an asset when dealing with clients and vendors. ~ Cheryl Kohs, Past Supervisor

You, Julie Malkin-Manning, are THE best! You made our day absolutely perfect and we cannot thank you enough!  ~ Mrs. M. (Bride)
