CUBBIE CORNER SPOTLIGHT: Julie Sellers
Hi, I'm Julie - Some people call me the "Lovely Julie", but little do they know, sometimes I'm not so lovely!!!! I've been working my summer gig now for a few years. I started out when we were the South Bend Silver Hawks selling launch a ball, picnic liaison and prize wheel - my favorite. There are actually some kiddos that started out as my regular prize wheel customers who are now young adults.
That is what I love about the park - seeing the kids year after year and being a small part of their lives. I got to see one of my little friends take his first steps on the concourse!!! I won't tell you how old he is now. I am now stationed in the middle of the concourse answering your questions, directing you to special attractions and trying to problem solve issues that may arise while you are our guests!
We work hard, we try to make it fun, but on one of those days you see me without a smile, shoot me one of yours - it will make my day!!!
What do you currently do for the South Bend Cubs? Manager of Guest Services
What do you enjoy most about being a Cubs employee? Getting to see all our season ticket holders, families coming out to have fun and all my summer "family"!!!
What do you do for work outside of being a Cubs employee? I work for the county as a CASA Supervisor - Court Appointed Special Advocate. We are the voice of children in court.
