Always a country girl, Julie Bilbrey has resided near Shell, WY since 1999. She was raised north of Broadus, MT on the family ranch - flipping hay bales off their strings by age six and running the swather by age 14. She also was drafted to fix fence, gather and work cattle, summer fallow, and pitch in wherever needed. A strong work ethic was instilled early on, and Julie knows the rewards of hard work.
Julie earned a degree in Applied Management while raising three kids, co-managing family livestock and haying operations, a trucking business, a bar, and serving as business manager and field director of a San Francisco-based market research company in Greybull, WY. She was actively involved as a 4-H leader, in local Chambers of Commerce and Economic Development groups, and served as Treasurer-elect on these boards for many years.
A veteran multi-tasker – staff accountant, tax preparer, bookkeeper, payroll manager, content creator, web developer, social media manager and data guru, Julie understands the importance of leadership, teamwork and confidentiality, and has a passion for quickly and accurately working with data – both words and numbers. She loves a challenging spreadsheet! A GoDaddy reseller, Julie builds websites and horse sale catalogs, one of which, twice a year from 2009-2022, involved video work with RFD-TV.
Balance to a life working remotely from a mobile RV office is maintained by weekend exploration of backcountry from the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming to the Arizona desert. If she can’t make it where she's headed in her Jeep, Julie often later returns with a horse. Julie enjoys campfires, fishing, reading (always learning new things), Outlaw country music, music cruises, snow and water sports, and spending time with adventurous friends and family, especially her horse-loving, barrel-racing, firecracker-of-a-granddaughter.
