40 under 40Our Marketing Director, Juli Kern, was recognized as one of Gulfshore Business’ 40 Under 40 rising stars in Southwest Florida.

For the last decade, Gulfshore Business has annually honored 40 emerging leaders, under the age of 40, who have distinguished themselves in their professions and/or community.

Juli was recognized for managing her career, remaining a vital part of the Johnson Engineering team, and earning promotion to marketing director, all while undergoing extensive treatment for breast cancer when she was five months pregnant with her second child.

Juli worked from home during her chemotherapy treatments and was promoted to marketing director within six months of her return to full time work. Today she is a survivor and a happily married, successful working mother of two young healthy children, who dedicates her time to being an advocate for others who have been diagnosed with cancer while pregnant.
