Board of Directors, Educator
Julie Barta attended her first summit at nine years old in Marquette, Michigan and has participated in nearly every summit since, whether it be as a guest, teacher, or Board member. Julie is from Columbus, Ohio but moved to the mountains of Boone, North Carolina in 2010 to attend Appalachian State University. She received a degree in Elementary Education and currently resides in Asheville, NC teaching second grade. Working with children and exploring nature are two of her greatest passions. The summit has greatly influenced Julie’s life and will continue to do so for years to come!
