Julie Peyton Stein
Julie was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. After earning a degree in Psychology and Art History at the University of Rochester, Julie moved to New York City where she earned a Master’s in Early Childhood & Elementary Education, and a Post-Master’s in Reading/Literacy at Bank Street College of Education. As an educator, Julie worked for both private schools and the NYC Board of Education. While living in New York, she was involved with the Leukemia Society of America’s Team in Training and UJA Federation of New York. Julie moved to South Florida in 2001, choosing to be a stay-at-home mom, but kept her ties to education and philanthropy by serving as PTO President at American Heritage School. Julie was co-captain of her Delray Beach tennis team in 2010-2011 and captain in 2011-2012. In 2011-2012, she was a mentor to students at American Heritage School, helping them raise $90,000 for a hospital project in Uganda. Locally, she has served on gala event committees for Old School Square and Kids in Distress. Julie continues to be a board member for the PTO, as well as an integral part of the community service programs at American Heritage School. She is co-chair of the annual South Florida luncheon benefiting the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. She is a board member for Impact 100, PBC and on JAFCO’s annual gala committee. Julie and her family are grateful for the opportunities that come with an education, and therefore, they send three children to boarding school in Uganda. In addition to volunteering, Julie is co-owner and co-founder of new company, Under the Sun, which is a protective hair care line for coastal living. Julie is honored to be on the Women of Tomorrow Palm Beach County Advisory Board, as well as a Mentor in the program.
