Julia Baker Hansen
Julia brings over a decade of entrepreneurial experience to Jeengle. Julia credits generations of entrepreneurial genes as the driving force behind her interest in new ideas.
As Founder and Principal for Just Business, a professional services consulting company that specialized in personal concierge services, client management and creative consultancy, Julia was accountable for directing all operational aspects of the company including client engagement, financial oversight and negotiations. During her tenure with Just Business, Julia grew operations by more than 300% – and received industry recognition after being personally profiled in Bloomberg BusinessWeek.
As Jeengle’s Executive Director, Julia holds firmly to the belief that people are inherently good. Period.
Julia holds a BA in Communication Arts with a concentration in Public Relations from Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa.
Although Denver is her forever home, Julia credits her first 22 years as an Iowan for making her the person she is today. And that very person is the best version of herself when she’s with her favorite unit – her husband and two daughters – preferably on an airplane together traveling somewhere new.
More about Julia
If you were a super hero, what would your power be?
My kryptonite would most definitely be remote controls. So, I suppose my power would be whatever beats remote controls.
Do you have any skills or talents that most people don’t know about you?
I can make a lobster fall asleep on its head.
If you weren’t doing what you do today, what other job would have you done?
I’d be a professional gift giver. I’m obsessive about finding perfect gifts!
What “lesson from mom” do you still live by today?
I literally can’t remember a day of my life when my mom didn’t say to me, “Be kind, it’s just so easy!”
