Julie Freeman is an accomplished Human Resources (HR) professional with over 20 years of experience. No stranger to Healthcare Bluebook, Julie worked for the organization for two years on a contract basis before joining the company full time in January 2020. Her depth of experience encompasses all facets of HR, from recruiting, hiring and onboarding to coordinating, negotiating and administering benefit packages and leading HR teams.
In addition to developing human resource plans and procedures for all Bluebook employees, Julie is responsible for maintaining compliance with local, state and federal laws. In her new role, Julie will provide leadership and guidance on organizational goals, visions and structure, and will oversee all aspects of talent acquisition aimed at attracting top talent who share Bluebook’s vision, are committed to its mission and fit well within the company’s unique culture.
While talent, skills and experience are key elements of candidate consideration, Julie cites a favorite quote by Angela Lynn Craig that touches on an equally important quality:
The body may be bought with a paycheck but the heart is earned with a purpose.
Previously, Julie was Chief Human Resources Officer for Martin Ventures, a healthcare-focused venture capital firm and shared services advisory company. She also served in a variety of roles for E+ Cancercare, LLC in which she redesigned the company’s recruiting structure, redeveloped the Kenexa Selection process and implemented the DDI Behavioral-based interview system.
A Nashville native, Julie attended both Southern College (Collegedale, TN) and Volunteer State Community College where she started in nursing but changed her focus to Business Administration. She resides in Mt. Juliet, TN with her husband and son and loves to spend as much time at the beach as possible.
