#TeamTuesday: Julie Perry used to be a teacher. One day, she and another member of her church went to visit the women's prison in Fluvanna County. There, Julie recalls, she realized what ministry could be and she "felt called." She describes it as "the earth was moving under my feet." She went back to school, seeking a master of divinity from Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond (BTSR), and ultimately became a chaplain at the prison.
Now, she's one of our four full-time staff chaplains and primarily works with cancer patients. Because she often works with patients through their cancer journey, she gets to know them really well. Our chaplains support patients from any religion or faith or no religion. Julie helps patients and their families work through their questions and find acceptance and peace, and she considers it a privilege to work with them.
Julie did some of her training at UVA and worked at the Fluvanna prison for six years, which she loved. However, she wanted to work in medicine again and pursue research and education opportunities, so she returned to UVA in 2015. She's currently working on a doctor of ministry degree.
Julie and her husband have two adult children and a granddaughter, with a grandson on the way! She loves sewing, being outside and spending time with her family.
