If small business is the engine that keeps America running, then Julie Eberly believes that lemonade is the fuel that powers that engine!
Eberly is the President of Lemonade Day, a national movement that teaches youth how to start, own and operate their own business through the real-world experience of a lemonade stand. Inspiring kids to set a goal, create a plan, work that plan and achieve success, they are also taught to spend some, save some and share some of their profits.
Julie brings passion, enthusiasm and creativity to everything she does. Her focus both personally and professionally is supporting “at risk” segments of the population by connecting the educational sector, the business community, youth and faith-based organizations with philanthropic giving to support programs that foster character development and entrepreneurship among youth.
Possessing a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from California State University, Eberly is currently one of 25 non-profit leaders in Rice University’s graduate LINE program. She also serves on the board of The Center for AIDS. Her engagement in the non-profit sector here at home has made a significant impact, but her passion for outreach & community development in Albania, Guatemala, India and other countries has taken her heart for the “at risk” global.
A native of Sacramento, Eberly now resides in Houston with her husband and four children.
