As the hub on which Vision Advertising turns, Julia Becker Collins leads all aspects of the company as the Chief Operating Officer. This is everything from managing day-to-day operations to talking marketing and business strategy with clients. Under her leadership, our agency continues to grow, expanding our services, clients, and staff.
When Julia joined Vision in 2016 as the Vice President of Marketing & Operations, she already had more than 12 years of experience in marketing and business. This includes non-profit and fundraising work, such as her work as Director of Marketing at Boston Color Graphics and being the Founding President (emeritus) & Co-Founder of the MetroWest Women’s Network, a group of ambitious local women that work together to meet their goals.
Julia holds an MPA from Framingham State University and a BA from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She was awarded the Distinguished Alum Award by the University of Massachusetts Amherst’s Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Department in 2016. In 2019, she won the 40 Under 40 Award from the Worcester Business Journal.
In 2020, Julia was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer. The COVID-19 crisis complicated matters as she had to navigate the healthcare system and help ensure the financial security of Vision Advertising during the crisis. An avid endurance athlete before her illness (including Spartan and Ultra races), Julia works mid-treatment to rebuild.
