International CME-CPD Consulting

Pleased to meet you

Results driven, strategic thinker with an entrepreneurial spirit and passion for leading teams to deliver innovative, well-designed, and financially viable medical education activities that achieve objectives, leave lasting impressions, and contribute toward improved patient care. 


Julie was born and raised on the West Coast of the United States, but attended university and began her career in Belgium and the Netherlands. She went on to work for 8 years in the CME department of one of California’s leading healthcare systems where she was responsible for the planning of hundreds of conferences, managing a team of 11 CME/event planning professionals, and leading the organization to obtaining accreditation with commendation from the Accreditation Council for CME (ACCME); the highest standard for CME providers in the United States.

Returning to the Netherlands to join Kenes Education as Director of Continuing Education, she was responsible for overseeing the CME/CPD accreditation and pharmaceutical/device industry code compliance across the company’s global operations. She led this by educating colleagues and clients on the changes and creating a procedural framework for integrating the various requirements into event operations.

Since 2014, Julie operates as a consultant under her company International CME-CPD Consulting; supporting international clients with accreditation, compliance, event planning services, and team trainings. 

Julie has presented at several industry conferences and written articles and editorials about international CME-CPD and compliance.
