Meet Julie ForlandJulie Forland, M.Ed. – Educational Placement Consultant
Associate with Horizon Family Solutions

In 1995, I walked into Best Buy and tried to buy the Internet. Though it is quite an embarrassing story now, then I was just excited to enroll my son in his first online class. At the time, I barely even knew what that meant.

Since then, I have spent 20 years in the world of education and have dedicated myself to assisting and partnering with families to guide, direct, and support their students in numerous educational capacities. I spent years teaching in public, charter, private, and online schools. I even enjoyed a dozen years as a homeschool mom and a literacy tutor.  Along the way, I returned to school myself, to earn my master’s degree, and moved into school administration, training teachers, managing literacy programs, developing courses and writing custom curricula.

Since joining the Horizon Family Solutions team, I have embarked on a new educational journey and have thoroughly enjoyed learning yet another realm of education.

As part of this journey, I have toured and visited dozens of specialty schools, meeting various staffs, evaluating academic programs and discerning best fit for students in the residential school world.

I am loving meeting and getting to know all my new colleagues in this industry.  Most importantly, every day I am excited to assist struggling students and their families from chaos through treatment and follow them to success. I am honored to support families in this way.

Personally, I like to be active and you can find me enjoying Colorado on my bike, at a local 5K or 10K, or hiking with friends. I also can be found curled up on the couch working on my ever-expanding book list. Most importantly, I am a proud mother of three successful adults and one awesome grandson.

Please contact me at Julie@HorizonFamilySolutions.com or by calling me at 303-448-8803 when you believe I can assist you or someone you know with your student or other educational needs.
