Julia Dowden
Account Manager

Julia joined Snap as an Account Manager in mid-December 2015. Sometimes we think of her as our early Christmas present.

When Julia first came to Snap and revealed that she had a degree in kinesiology, she unknowingly branded herself as the go-to expert for all things relating to health and fitness. That is, until her kick-ass account manager skills revealed themselves and we realized she is a woman of many talents. Despite getting acquainted with the office culture in the midst of the chaotic holiday season, she fit in to our processes and parties in no time. Julia brings her natural Canadian level-headedness into work day after day and does her best to keep us all cool and collected. She’s a wonderful voice to have for Snap, and for the clients she’s representing.

What was your first concert like?

Red Hot Chili Peppers. I was 17, and I skipped volleyball practice to drive from my high school in Austin, MN to the Cities with almost all of the volleyball team. I missed my parents’ curfew by 2 hours on a school night. Chili peppers are awesome, it was worth it.

What do you do for Snap?

Interact with clients, project planning and insuring the project gets done, overall strategy to make sure each departments goals interact with each other… making sure everyone is happy

What do you like most about your role?

Being able to collaborate with people who are experts in what they do. Everyone at Snap has great passion and a lot of knowledge in their respective areas. I see them funnel that passion it into a strategy that just works. It’s pretty cool when you can get a room full of experts excited about anything.

What do you like most about Snap?

The constant laughter and banter during the work day. It keeps the energy level high and makes difficult tasks more enjoyable, the days fly by when everyone has fun with each other. We hold each other accountable and keep each other positive.

What can you never leave home without?

  • Gym bag (sneakers, clothes, protein shakes,)
  • Work Clothes Bag
  • Lunch bag
  • Work bag (Laptop, task book, charger, chapstick, 1000 Pens)
