Resident Spotlight: Julia

Why did you choose to live at The Biltmore?

My husband and I wanted a spacious townhome with lots of storage and a community. The Biltmore was a natural fit! We’ve been here for several years and have enjoyed getting to know the staff and our neighbors.

How did you get involved with the American Lung Association?

I have been serving the American Lung Association since 2011. I love going to work every day! I have many personal ties to lung disease and lung cancer and wanted to work for an organization where I could impact change in the community and make a difference.

What do you love most about your position?

My favorite thing about the American Lung Association is our mission and the depth and breadth of the work that we do! We touch so many lives every day. The mission of the American Lung Association is to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease. You might not know that the American Lung Association is the country’s oldest voluntary public health organization – and we’ve accomplished some pretty cool things over the last century – including discovering a treatment for children living with TB, eliminating smoking on domestic air flights and strengthening the Clean Air Act. Our work is focused on five strategic imperatives: defeating lung cancer, improving the air we breathe, reducing the burden of lung disease on individuals and their families, eliminating tobacco use and tobacco-related diseases and accelerating fundraising and enhancing organizational effectiveness to support the urgency of our mission. I love that in my role, I get to work to raise awareness and dollars to help make our work happen.
