Julie Ann Cook RN, BSN, PCHA- Administrator
Julie has been with the Shared Home since October 2021. Her nursing career has been entirely in long-term care care ever since she was 19 years old; first as a Certified Nursing Assistant, then as a Registered Nurse. She studied at Penn State-Main Campus for 2 years before running out of money and having to leave school. Two years later, she returned to college only to leave after a year due work-related injuries; she had been working full-time as a Certified Nursing Assistant to pay my way through college. In 1992, she decided to make 3rd attempt at college. She graduated with her Associates' degrees in Psychology and in Nursing from Harrisburg Area Community College. She met John two months before going back to college, but with his families' support she was able to comp[ete my goal. In 2013 she chose to go back college and get her Bachelor's degree from Phoenix University, she would graduate in 2015.
She grew up in Knoxville before moving with her family to Elizabethtown. She has since moved back to Tioga county with her family including a son and her husband who works for Advance Auto. So if you go to Advance, say 'Hi', to John.
