Julie has always had a strong desire to help the soldiers that do so much for our country. She has been deeply affected by the devastating stories of struggling military soldiers and their families and hopes to make a positive impact on the lives of such deserving men and woman.
“I have a passion for helping others and have done so for much of my life”. Most recently I was partnered with a company; Ultimate Sacrifice Appreciation, DBA- USA Lock and Load. We raised and donated money too many military charities; such as Operation Home Front and Warrior Legacy Foundation of Maine to assist them in their efforts to help military personal and their families. Some of our efforts included donations from the raffling of 2 of our company logoed guitars that were signed by Toby Keith and Steven Tyler of Aerosmith.
It is my desire and ongoing commitment to assist home coming military integrate back into society upon their safe return from war. It is my passion and personal goal to alert the public of the plight that soldiers face so that together we can tackle the monumental challenges that lie before them.

In 1979 at 24 years old, I moved to Windham, NH, and built myself a house, that I share with Lori, my wife of 27 years. I spent 25 years as a manufacturer’s representative in the contract manufacturing industry. In 2006, when it became clear that the industry had seen better days, I decided to re-invent myself, and started Absolute Medical Solutions, which specializes in the Safe Patient Handling field. My goal or mission is to increase safety in the environment of acute care facilities, in both the private sector, as well as the VA Healthcare system. I provide solutions to hospitals struggling with how to move or handle patients, in a manner that is the safest to both the staff and patient alike.
Spare time is spent with my wife Lori and our dog Calvin, a 20 month old Doberman Pinscher with enough energy to power a small city.
