Office: SHS 211


Education: BA, New Mexico State University, 1985. At SPU since 2006.

Julie Ann Harrington is the budget manager and assistant to the dean of the School of Health Sciences. In addition to managing the budget, paying bills, and providing administrative assistance to the dean, she also coordinates events for the school, oversees day-to-day school operations, and manages faculty resources. The position is a perfect blend for Ms. Harrington to use her creative and analytical skills.

Before transitioning to SPU, she enjoyed an 18-year career in banking. While experiencing much success in the fast-paced business world, she has found that working at SPU provides a relationship-centered focus that surrounds all aspects of her job and makes for rich job satisfaction. At the center of those relationships are the students (whom she enjoys most), and supporting those who serve our students is paramount.

When not working at SPU, Ms. Harrington has fun attending weddings, as she works with a wedding planner and is a floral designer. She is always active in one or two Bible studies and attends Calvary Ballard, where she serves on the hospitality team.


Why I Work at SPU

Julie Ann Harrington, Budget Manager and Assistant to the Dean

“It’s all about the students! I love being a part of watching the students grow into young adults who are educated, excited, and graciously ready to serve people in their time of need. Nursing is a special calling, and, although I personally was not called to that profession, it is exciting to be able to serve those who are educating the next generation of nurses.”
