Julia Bulotti here, the newest addition to the dovetail solutions crew! I’m so happy to be part of this team, especially as we enter an exciting time of growth, expanding our services and connecting with new partners in the California market. As a California native based in Denver, I found the timing serendipitous. I feel particularly fortunate to make new connections to my West Coast past while staying rooted down in the Mile High City.

Here’s a glimpse into what brought me here.

After growing up in California, I jetted off to Seattle, Washington, for college (Go Dawgs!) to study political science and French. I loved the change of pace of the bigger city and experienced all four seasons (and rainy days), unlike life in California. My time spent in Seattle was incomparable, and it introduced me to a career in public relations right out of the gates when I graduated from the University of Washington. I joined a boutique PR agency specializing in technology startups and learned so much about the trade in so little time. After six years in the Pacific Northwest, I realized my love for Seattle’s rainy vibes had worn off and I was ready for a California-like climate and change of scenery yet again. But the next adventure on my mind wasn’t California — it was Colorado.

Through my work at my previous agency, I had the opportunity to visit Denver a few times and it immediately became a city I couldn’t stop thinking about. After only a few months of deliberation, I pulled the trigger and moved. I couldn’t pass up a life with 300-plus days of sunshine and skiing the world-famous Rocky Mountains!

As I became more and more invested in making Denver my home base, with nearly four years of experience in public relations, I was also hungry for a new professional challenge. After being introduced to dovetail solutions, I was immediately drawn to its supportive and tight-knit culture and its clientele of reputable and impactful companies that have powerful stories to tell. Many of dovetail solutions’ clients are highly influential in this market and are heavy hitters in Colorado and Denver. Needless to say, personally and professionally, it’s a perfect fit. Not to mention, the agency’s public affairs offerings fired up my interest in potentially diving back into my political science background.

I might only be a few months in, but it already feels like home here. I look forward to growing with this team, and all the opportunities that lie ahead!
