Special Project Coordinator
Julia is Rising Tide Capital’s Special Project Coordinator, working directly with our CEO, Alfa Demmellash. In 2016, Julia Fitzgerald graduated with a dual BA in Sociology and Spanish from Fordham University, where she was inducted into the Sociology Honors Society (Kappa Delta Pi). As a Special Project Coordinator, Julia provides research and support to various special projects and initiatives to help projects grow in knowledge and capacity. This position is designed to assist the CEO to expand programs, advancement, and impact. Her previous experience includes work as a community outreach coordinator at Workforce Housing Group. She was also the Sales Distribution Manager at The Bronx Hot Sauce, an organization that aims to build community capacity among low-income areas by growing and cultivating peppers in urban gardens. Having the ability to create opportunity, sustainability and a positive impact for those who are under-served is what originally brought her to the RTC team as the Business Services Coordinator through the AmeriCorps VISTA program. During her spare time, she likes to hang out with her family and friends, travel, practice yoga, and read a good book on the beach.
