Julie is a Texas native and a former teen Medicaid mom who put herself through college and law school. She earned her BBA in Accounting, University of Texas at Arlington and her JD, Taxation, at the University of Texas School of Law. In 2003 she co-wrote the Texas Motor Fuels tax, which brings millions of dollars into Texas much of it for roads and infrastructure, but a portion of which is set aside for Texas’ badly underfunded public education. Later that year she was hired by her current employer, St. David’s HealthCare, where she works as a lawyer and accountant in healthcare finance. In her spare time, Oliver volunteers with Meals on Wheels, attends Riverbend Church, and teaches yoga. She is a member of the Austin Board of Central Health, and is married with four children.
