We always hope that our Tri-Rivers graduates not only succeed in their career fields, but also become contributing members of their communities. Julia Doty, who was nominated by Terri Mantey for an Outstanding Alumni Award, is deserving of this honor. She is an active member of the community both professionally and personally.
Julia has used the skills she learned at Tri-Rivers to not only enhance her family life, but also the community. She graduated from the Office Education Co-op program in 1980—where she worked in the mornings and attended classes in the afternoon. When she graduated, she worked at the same company for three additional years. She then moved to Texas where she started out as a clerk for a bank and then moved up to being a mortgage loan processor. She eventually then moved back to Marion and was hired as an Executive Secretary for a Senior Vice President of a local company. From there she moved to become a legal secretary for a local law firm where she was employed for 20 years. Currently she is the Service Coordinator at Seton Square in Marion.
For her current position Julie earned the Professional Service Coordinator Certification through The Ohio State University College of Medicine, Office of Geriatrics and Interprofessional Aging Studies. At Seton Square she helps residents to access services available in the community and designs programs and services to meet their needs. She works closely with the Council on Aging, Area Agency on Aging, Ohio Senior Health Insurance Information Program, OSU Extension Office, OhioHealth, and the Marion Senior Center.
She also gives back to the community by serving as a mass lector at her church, assisting with Sunday School for young children, working as a poll worker for the Marion County Board of Elections, and attending quarterly social worker round tables. She was also a 4-H leader at one time. She dearly loves serving her community and church.
Julia’s story is a Tri-Rivers’ success story. She is very deserving of an Outstanding Alumni Award.
