Julie Whelan

After graduating from NC State, Julie Whelan volunteered with HeadCount at Bonnaroo and was hooked. She is the Executive Director of SoleMates Foundation, a local non-profit in Raleigh that collects new and gently used shoes to give to people in need. When she is not busy with the foundation, she is working on PR for Feelgoodz, an eco-friendly flip flop company, and working as a personal assistant to Uvo Luxury’s fashion designer. Julie believes live music is a powerful vehicle for promoting social change.
