Julie Huffman is a Registered Nurse and teaches Nurse Assisting at the Jordan Academy for Technology and Careers. She earned her nursing degree right out of high school and then spent the next 15 years working with patients in a variety of hospital settings. On a whim she took a clinical instructor position with the Nurse Assisting program and was delighted to discover she not only loves teaching, she also loves her students. Four years later she moved into the classroom instructor position, where she has been since 2006. When she isn’t spending time in the classroom she enjoys hiking with her husband of 30 years, reading anything that is mysterious and bloodthirsty, riding roller coasters, and playing Nana to her adorable grandsons.
