Julie R. Morgan

Program Specialist

B.A., Old Dominion University (1992)

Julie Morgan started working at the Center for Coastal Physical Oceanography (CCPO) in 1991 as an undergraduate technical research associate. In 1992, she received a B.A. in English from Old Dominion University. Upon graduation, she left CCPO for seven months and went to the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF), now known as the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab). She returned to CCPO in 1993 to work with Dr. Eileen Hofmann as a technical writer. In this capacity, she served as the technical editor for Foundations for Ecological Research West of the Antarctic Peninsula, as part of the American Geophysical Union's Antarctic Research Series. She coordinates logistics and compiles and edits reports for national and international meetings. Julie also manages several research grants and coordinates proposals. She has served as both the editor and technical editor for CCPO Circulation, the Center's informational newsletter. Julie was the coordinator and Web site manager for the Southern Ocean GLOBEC Planning Office, which was directed by Dr. Hofmann and housed at CCPO from 2005-2010. She served as the technical editor for Integrated Ecosystem Studies of Western Antarctic Peninsula Continental Shelf Waters and Related Southern Ocean Regions (Deep-Sea Research II, Vol. 51, Nos. 17-19, 2004); Dynamics of Plankton, Krill, and Predators in Relation to Environmental Features of the Western Antarctic Peninsula and Related Areas: SO GLOBEC Part II (Deep-Sea Research II, Vol. 55, Nos. 3-4, 2008); and Understanding the Linkages between Antarctic Food Webs and the Environment: A Synthesis of Southern Ocean GLOBEC Studies (Deep-Sea Research II, Vol. 58, Issues 13-16, Pages 1505-1740, July-August 2011). She has served as the editorial assistant for special volumes of Progress in Oceanography and Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability. Julie is responsible for logistics and planning for the CCPO and ODU Resilience Collaborative Seminar Series, which takes place during the fall and spring semesters. Julie also coordinates various educational outreach opportunities, such as a Boy Scouts of America Oceanography Merit Badge program. Outside of CCPO, Julie volunteered with her Bernese Mountain Dog (Santera Winter Storm Ranger CGC TDIA ThD) from 2007-2014. Julie and Ranger, a certified therapy dog, participated in local library and school reading programs, in addition to visiting St. Mary's Home. On September 11, 2008, The Literacy Partnership recognized Julie and Ranger for their work with the 2008 RADM Ben Hacker Leadership in Literacy Award (individual category). As of April 2015, Julie has been doing therapy visits with an ex-racer Greyhound (Barts All That CGC). Julie and Bart are members of the Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters (CHKD) Buddy Brigade. Julie is also a member of the Norfolk Public Schools' Gifted Education Advisory Committee (GEAC).
