Campus: St. Petersburg
Julie Harding has been an advisor with the Muma College of Business since 2006. She brings a wealth of experience to support students as a transfer from St. Petersburg College (SPC), and as a graduate from the University of South Florida’s St. Petersburg and Tampa campuses. She earned a bachelor’s degree in finance, minoring in economics, and earned a Master of Education from USF.
Harding worked in the finance industry as a risk analyst for FIS and underwriter for the Department of Veterans Affairs and Citigroup before transitioning into the education field. She appreciated assisting others with financial services but wanted to impact individuals in a greater capacity. Her advisors from both SPC and USF made lasting impressions and she wanted to develop meaningful, inspiring relationships as well.
As an avid puzzler, she enjoys the challenges and variety that advising students bring on a daily basis. She thrives on guiding, motivating, and collaborating with students to realize their potential. Celebrating student successes along the path to graduation reinforces her passion for this job.
