Julie Burgal earned her B.S. in Biotechnology here at UC Davis and her M.S. in Genetics and Cell Biology at Washington State University.
Julie shifted her career focus from genetic research to student advising after realizing that she wanted to use her experiences from college and graduate school and apply it to helping other students. She started her advising career at UC Davis in 2008 in the Managerial Economics major before moving on to the College of Engineering. She worked with the College of Engineering for seven years, first at the departmental level in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and then at the Dean's Office level in the Engineering Undergraduate Office.
Julie is passionate about helping students hone in on their study skills, helping them find ways to become more effective with their study habits and expand their resource base. She enjoys helping students find their niche within their major, helping them realize their career passion.
Outside of the office, Julie enjoys hiking with her dogs, traveling with her family and being outdoors.
