At CCAH, we know that progress is what keeps us relevant and keeps us moving toward our mission — advancing change and committing to activism that makes a difference. That’s why each quarter we like to recognize one our newest employees who is helping move us toward our goals and continuing our push for progress. Our Rookie of the Quarter award is given to an employee who has started their CCAH journey in the past year and has shown their willingness to go above and beyond. They are nominated by the CCAH management committee (our partners, VPs, and president, Kim Cubine), and they exemplify CCAH’s commitment to progress.
This quarter, we are recognizing Julia Simms.
Julia is a graduate of the University of Maryland, College Park. Holding a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications, with a focus in public relations (PR), she started her post-collegiate career doing PR for some of the most powerful players in the think tank, public affairs, and research and education spaces. These noteworthy places include: New America, Vox Global, and the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism. Excited about her transition into the marketing arena as a Direct Mail Account Representative for Chapman Cubine and Hussey, Julia hit the ground running. Coming on board with little fundraising experience, she became a sponge — soaking up any and all information she could get exposure too. This go-getter attitude catalyzed her growth and development within the company, serving both her clients and team well. In her spare time, Julia enjoys writing poetry and re-watching episodes of her favorite show, The Office.
We are proud to have Julia as part of our CCAH family and cannot wait to see what comes next. Congratulations on being our Rookie of the Quarter!
