Julie Fraser

Julie Fraser has been a member of Quality Committee since 2017.

Originally from Stratford, Julie came to Windsor in 1991 to complete her Masters in Clinical Psychology and her Doctorate in Applied Social Psychology. She now calls Tecumseh home.  After twelve years in public health, she embarked on a consulting career with an emphasis on program evaluation, performance measurement, strategic planning and, most recently, helping organizations move the needle on inclusion, diversity, equity, and anti-oppression. She is a long-time adjunct faculty member at the University of Windsor, with a strong history of undergraduate and graduate level teaching. In her spare time, you will find Julie singing with the Windsor Classic Chorale, cooking, working out, or, more likely, managing the chaos created by her two kids, husband, and dog.
