AMA Las Vegas Spotlights Julie Gough

Tacos and Blogging and Mountains, Oh My!

Meet Julie Gough, a mother, a blogger and marketing director at Shepherd Eye Center.

Her original dream of becoming a sports news anchor quickly changed after having the life-altering experience of working at a small hospital in a communications role right out of college. It was there that her passion for the medical industry merged with her B.S. in Communications from University of Wyoming.

Ten years after finishing her undergrad, she took the leap and went back to school to earn her M.S. in Health Communication from Boston University. This was not an easy feat, considering she was working part time, and raising three kids as a single mom. Let’s all take a moment to appreciate this huge accomplishment. Kudos to you, Julie!

As you can imagine, Julie did not stay single for long. She was nabbed up quickly by her current husband, who she met online! Julie, any tips you want to give the single ladies out there, please share.

Here’s a little more of what makes Julie unique. While she had a bit of trouble identifying her favorite sports team, she had no trouble identifying her favorite lunch spot. Tacos El Gordo tops her list for lunch, but for dinner, she enjoys trying new restaurants around town with her husband on date night.

If you would have asked her favorite vacation spot a few years back, she probably would have answered “the beach.” However, nowadays, this busy lady now finds solitude and peace hiking in the mountains.

Personal hobbies are sometimes pushed aside as a busy mom; however, she thoroughly enjoys blogging with her team of four from her same graduate program at Check it out!

When she’s not blogging, you can find Julie sharing her perspective on health communication one Tweet at a time @jmgough24.For more information, please contact Julie at

Now that you know a little more about Julie and how to get in touch, please take the time to make a new connection and strike up a conversation.
