Who is Julie Mazur?
Born around 20 May, we know that she is a few years younger than her 29-year-old sister, but her exact age is unknown. According to her LinkedIn, she graduated from Illinois State University in communication – organisational leadership in 2017, so we predict that she’s turning 27 years old at the end of this month.
Whilst at University, Mazur was part of the Chi Omega sorority and participated in volunteer work for children and families under the Greater Chicago Food Depository and Feed My Starving Children.
After graduation, she worked as an executive team leader in human resources for Target in Mundelein, Illinois, before getting promoted to the Highland Park branch.
Her career with Target ended in May 2019 after joining the business consulting firm, DHR Global. Mazur began as a learning and development specialist and has worked as their global learning and development manager since January 2021.
As for her family, she only has one sister and has a close relationship with her parents.
