Julie is a registered breeder as Bozeeb Kennel’s and actively supports and contributes to the breed improvement schemes. Julie has held many committee positions within the branch often holding multiple positions at a time. Julie currently holds the position of Assistant Branch Manager, Membership Officer and Breed Affairs Liaison at the Gippsland Branch. On occasions in the past when a committee position have become available mid year due to member resignations Julie never hesitates to step up and fill the position for the remainder of the year. Julie held the position of Branch Manager at Gippsland for 9 years (2004 – 2012). Julie’s commitment to the GSDCV and in particular the Gippsland branch has far exceeded what most people would expect from the manager of a country branch. During her time as Branch Manager Julie rarely missed a Management Committee meeting despite the long distances she had to travel from her home to where the meetings were held. In addition to attending the Management Committee meetings, Julie also attends most breed affairs meetings as part of her role of Breed Affairs Liaison for Gippsland. Julie is an accredited Show Instructor and never hesitates to help people interested in showing by sharing her extensive knowledge and experience. Julie has an undeniable passion for the German Shepherd Dog and the GSDCV.
