Chief Executive Officer
Julie Davis has served as the Chief Executive Officer for YWCA Tulsa since 2017, joining the team after having worked in the non-profit field for nearly 10 years in development and as the Associate Director for Up With Trees. Prior to Up With Trees, she worked at the American Cancer Society where she managed events across the state to raise funds in the fight against cancer. Julie was member of Leadership Tulsa Class 54, as well as the Tulsa Area United Way NexTulsa Class 4. She serves as a member of the Advisory Board for the Tulsa Regional Chamber of Commerce, as well as on multiple committees for other non-profit organizations across the community including Leadership Tulsa, Community Service Council, and CAP Tulsa.
Before entering the non-profit world, Julie received her Bachelor’s degree from Drury University, and her Master’s Degree from the University of Tulsa. Her husband, Paul Davis, is the Executive Director of CityYear, and together they work to serve Tulsa and make a positive impact in the community. She is also a mother of two young girls (under 4!), and is passionate about making the world a place where young girls will be empowered to live out their dreams. When she isn’t running after Mia and Olivia or working on strategic plans for the YWCA, you can find Julie reading a book or heading to spend time with her family in Missouri.
