  • Julie A. Huron, BSH, LNHA - Executive Director
    Julie Huron is a licensed nursing home administrator (LNHA) and has worked in long-term care for the past six years and in health care for the past seventeen years. She received her undergraduate degree in health services administration (BSH degree) from Ohio University, as well as a certificate in gerontology. She has experience with hospice volunteer management and with nursing home compliance. Julie has also managed the business office and insurance/collections for Travel MD, a physician-nurse practice caring for patients at home, in assisted living, and at skilled nursing facilities. Huron has great success identifying West Virginia insurance hurdles and the many levels of proper credentialing.

    Julie started her career in health care as a certified doula, childbirth educator, and mom’s group coordinator in the Huntington area. As a doula, she has attended births throughout West Virginia in hospitals, homes, and in West Virginia’s only currently operating freestanding birth center, and she has a vast network of peers throughout West Virginia and Ohio.

    Huron resides in Huntington, and has a son, Phoenix, who is a freshman attending Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, Ohio. Julie looks forward to growing the membership of the West Virginia Nurses Association and to all opportunities to increase the visibility of – and opportunities for – the nurses of West Virginia.
