Julie Koerber is the Managing Editor and Publisher of Yellowstone Valley Woman Magazine. Before her print career, she spent 12 years as an award-winning reporter and anchor for KTVQ-2, where she not only reported before U.S. Presidents and live from the Grammy Music Award’s red carpet, but she used her voice to advocate for children in foster care. In 1996, she helped start Montana’s first television adoption awareness campaign (The Waiting Child Program). In 2009, she helped launch The Heart Gallery of Yellowstone County, a display inside Rimrock Mall profiling the faces and stories of the area’s adoptable kids. To date, these programs have helped hundreds of children find forever families. This work earned her the U.S. Congressional Angels in Adoption Award. In 2004, Julie changed professional gears taking the job as editor of YVW, where she has loved weaving colorful stories about inspirational women in our community. In 2018, Julie and her husband, Ken, landed a leadership role with the magazine and are now the owners and publishers of YVW, Billings’ most read magazine.
The Transition Network
As Executive Director of The Transition Network (TTN), Susan has lived the transition that the organization was founded to support. After leaving her long-time career in homebuilding in 2007, she joined TTN, became a member of the steering committee of her local chapter, then decided she wanted to lead the organization and bring the message of “embracing change after 50” to as many other women as possible.
Since taking the helm in 2013, TTN has grown to 14 chapters and over 3,000 members across the country. Susan believes that as we age, we want and need to build strong connections with others to keep ourselves healthy, to combat loneliness and to give our lives meaning and purpose. This is the essence of what TTN is all about.
