We have a returning guest this morning, Julie Coll, Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of the King Harbor Boating Foundation.
Starting in 1988, Julie spent 20 years helping Fortune 500 companies strategize and implement emerging network and internet technologies. After a personal tragedy, she retired to pursue volunteer opportunities that could utilize her corporate experience while allowing her to help others access and enjoy the ocean.
Julie also co-founded the King Harbor Sea Fair, a popular, local family event and over the years, has served on the board of directors for the King Harbor Youth Foundation and the King Harbor Yacht Club. She has held many leadership positions within King Harbor Yacht Club and founded the Women’s Race Fleet. Due to her deep love and respect for the ocean, Julie champions and mentors new boaters and encourages safe boating practices and marine conservation.
Julie actively races her Martin 242 while mentoring, educating and encouraging girls/women out on the water. As a fulltime volunteer for Waterfront Education, she is developing a talented educational team and building collaborative partnerships that are creating programs designed to inspire students while instilling them with a lifelong curiosity and love of the ocean.
She feels privileged that she gets to call Redondo Beach and King Harbor home.
SEA Lab and Waterfront Education will host the first annual Summer Solstice Beach Party fundraiser on Tuesday, June 20 from 5:30 to 9 p.m. and this morning, we’re going to learn what attendees can expect.
