Distinguished Alumna Julia Christophersen graduated in 1995 with a degree in business administration with a specialty in marketing and finance. She is chief ecommerce officer for GreaterGood, a network of websites, stores and causes that make it easy for people to donate to various charities that serve people, animals and the planet.

“Small actions online matter, creating real results for the greater good,” Christophersen said, adding that the company has given more than $30 million to nonprofit charities since 1999.

Christophersen’s career has taken her to the Amazon to see thousands of acres her company helped purchase from a poacher; to China where she’s worked with a woman-owned factory for the past four years; and to Thailand to see animal shelters her company helped build to rescue dogs from the meat trade.

“The business classes here at Central helped me prepare for my career ahead,” Christophersen said.
