Meet Julie Harjung
Julie is one of those incredibly interesting individuals with more years of experience than most of us. She retired October 2021 from the New York State Department of Conservation after 25 years as a Forest Ranger, is still active with the local rescue squad, and is scheduled to finish the NYS Department of Health Paramedic Course in January.
WMA really cares about the students. They don’t just toss info at you and expect you to regurgitate it. They make sure you know it and can use it, without apprehension when you really need it. – WFR Student Sheridan Mountain Campus
Thank you, thank you, thank you guys for all that you provide in these very real and in-depth courses. Your instructors are top notch. As a registered Maine Sea Kayak Guide, I was hoping to never have to use my WFR skills, however, I am incredible thankful that I did have them. The competency of your instructors is why I was able to do what I did in the field. – WFR Student
I just wanted to tell you what an incredible experience the class was for me. I learned more than I ever imagined I could in 5 days. Michelle [Murphy] is great and such a wealth of knowledge. I look forward to keeping my certification current. – WMA Student
