Julie Mckinney

Title: Development Assistant


Before joining Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada: I come from a diverse background of self-employment and business administration. Most recently, I was the owner of Whooha Gear, a women’s apparel business, that I co-founded and ran for over a decade before selling. I have been a massage therapist and lifestyle coach for many years and also assisted in the management of Gizmo Cycling, a Las Vegas bicycle importer. 

Education: Bachelor of Science in International Business from Ithaca College

About me: When I am not working, you will find me outdoors. Whether riding trails or climbing mountains, I love taking advantage of adventures wherever I can in our beautiful southwest desert. In my downtime, I re-charge in the garden with my husband, 2 Jack Russell Terriers and the “girls” (my 9 chickens)!

My favorite thing about working at MAWSNV: I love knowing that every little thing that I do throughout the day is playing a part in bringing joy and wishes to children and families that need it the most.

My wish would be: To hike Machu Picchu

You will find meaning in life only if you create it. It is a poetry to be composed. It is a song to be sung. It is a dance to be danced... ”
