About Me

My Story...

Julie Parker was born in Cuba and came to the U.S. in 1961 as a refugee escaping from Castro's dictatorship and communism. She settled in Fairfield, Connecticut for nearly 28 years before coming to New Jersey.

Julie created the Flemington Information Center in 1991 to help local businesses. The Center helps guide out of area shoppers and visitors. That same year, she started a publishing company, which she later sold.

Over the next 8 years, Julie became an Award-Winning Avon District Sales Manager. She founded the first Avon Beauty Center at Bridgewater Commons, finally moving to Main Street in Flemington.

After selling her successful Avon business, Julie started the Small Biz Networking Meetup. Over the following 11 years the group has grown to include over 500 business owners. She also held the position of General Manager at Northlandz for 2 years. Julie now performs a consulting role including fund raising for several major businesses in the community.

Julie's strengths are Social Media, Marketing, Networking and Public Relations. She also enjoys planning and organizing Car & Music Shows within local communities. Taking her love for bling and parties to a whole other level, Julie creates amazing events down to the smallest details.

Wine Tasting with One Hope Wines and selling Touchstone Crystal by Swarovski Jewelry keep Julie busy. She can often be found at Stangl Market on Saturdays.

Julie works tirelessly to give back to local non-profit organizations such as StarThrower Group in Flemington. She sits on the StarThrower Group Board of Directors and enjoys helping whenever and wherever she's needed.

Julie holds a BA in Spanish/Education from Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut. She has 2 daughters and 7 grandchildren. Her husband, Stephen, is an Environmental Engineer whom she helps run his business.
