JULIA SPRINGSTEEN identifies needs in her community, both professionally and personally.
Springsteen pursued a law degree and practiced, first in Virginia, and now in Kentucky. Her practice in Elizabethtown was dedicated to supporting local non-profit organizations, which then can better support the community’s most vulnerable.
Again, looking at a vulnerable population, Springsteen formed Friends of Hardin County Animal Shelter, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in 2014, to help fundraise for programs in support of homeless pets. She is also a charter investor and served on the core committee to develop “Heels Together” women’s fund to support worthy community programs designed to raise up women and girls in Hardin County. “Heels Together” is currently in its fourth year.
Springsteen has also been active on The Heritage Council for several years, chairing and organizing the BBQ, Blues and Bikes Festival in 2018. She and her family live in Hardin County.
