Vital Life Foundation

Julie Kresl • Director

Julie credits her big Midwestern family for the passion she feels for senior care and volunteering. Some of her favorite childhood memories include quality time with her grandparents, aunts and uncles, and visits to the local nursing home.

After graduating from the University of North Dakota with a Bachelor of Social Work degree, she embarked on a 21-year long-term care career that has included social service, activity and facility administration positions with Marquis Companies.

She’s active in volunteer-driven causes, delivering food to the needy through her church, helping out at the PTA and serving as a Girl Scout leader. “Through my example, I want my children to see the world in a different way, and know that other people have needs,” Julie says.

Her diverse professional experience will be invaluable as Vital Life seeks to foster a closer connection between facility staff and the charitable organizations they value and support. She’s already helped organize fundraising walks in support of the Alzheimer’s Association, and is working closely with Loaves and Fishes/Meals on Wheels.
