Senior Manager of Content Development


As AMT’s Exhibitions Senior Manager of Content Development, Jules leads AMT’s effort to create helpful, informative, and entertaining articles and videos for the IMTS community.

Connecting people with technology has been a theme throughout Jules’s career, which she began as a public-school teacher in Little Rock, Ark. Advancing quickly to be a technology facilitator, she challenged students to develop computer and video skills to benefit the local community. In one case, her students created a virtual tour of a local WWII museum, which was featured on the museum’s website.

With strong analytical skills and a knack for understanding complex subjects, Jules developed a curriculum on environmental law at the Nutrients for Life Foundation, a non-profit organization with strong ties to the agricultural industry. She also created lesson plans, online materials, and educational games on soil science with partnerships with the Smithsonian Institution and Discovery Communications. Later, she developed online education materials about the MTConnect® Standard for AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology.

Outside of work, Jules focuses her energy on her spirited toddler. She also enjoys caring for her garden and sewing clothes for her toddler. Whether nurturing a rose bush back to health, stitching a new outfit for her son, or telling a manufacturing story, Jules will ensure they blossom to their full potential.
