Short Bio

Julie Hill, Ph.D., is an assistant professor and the clinical coordinator for the Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling Master’s program. She is a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC) and a National Certified Counselor (NCC).

Dr. Hill is primarily a qualitative researcher, but has worked on mixed methods and quantitative projects. She believes in the power of telling one’s story. Her research interests focus on quality of life, coping, adaptation, and adjustment to chronic illness and disability. She has a special interest in focusing on underserved populations with chronic illness and disability, such as those living with rare diseases. Additional research interests include employment, career development, career construction, and life design for individuals living with chronic illness and disability. Dr. Hill volunteers with various patient-led organizations such as Dysautonomia Support Network and Alabama Rare.

Dr. Hill’s passion for working with individuals with chronic illness and disability comes from her own experiences as someone living with multiple chronic illnesses and navigating career changes because of those conditions. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her nieces and nephews, reading a good mystery novel, and watching movies.
