About the author

Julie Elliott likes to say she ‘grew up on a horse’ in the country on the Palmer Divide west of Limon, CO. Her family raised beef cattle on a small operation and ran a few milk cows, along with sheep, chickens, meat rabbits and feeder pigs. She attended Colorado State University and majored in Wildlife Biology, but soon realized that most wildlife live on private lands and most private lands are rangeland. She added a Range Ecology minor and was actively involved in the student chapters of both The Wildlife Society and Society for Range Management. Julie started with the (then) Soil Conservation Service as a Range Conservationist in April 1991 in Cheyenne Wells, CO. There she was able to garner a grant to host a workshop with Stan Parsons which jump started her career long passion of educating those who live on the land. After 11 years in Cheyenne Wells, she transferred to Wray, CO, where she now serves as a multi-county Rangeland Management Specialist in the Republican River Watershed. Julie lives in Holyoke, CO, and is married to her best friend, Thom. They have one daughter, Camille.
