Performing Arts Management is thrilled to announce the office’s new accountant, Julie Rivers. Rivers joined BYU’s Performing Arts Management team in the fall of 2020. Rivers has a bachelor of science in accounting from the University of Utah and is currently working toward receiving her master of accountancy from Utah Valley University.
Rivers worked in public education for 10 years managing the finances for several elementary schools and high schools. She loves working with students and administrators. She feels that a collaborative atmosphere works to create greater understanding for all participants and an increased likelihood of success in achieving workplace goals. For years Rivers has enjoyed attending a wide variety of BYU performances, and she is excited to be able to work with performing groups in a behind-the-scenes capacity.
Rivers loves to be outdoors and enjoys traveling, hiking, paddleboarding, and cycling. She and her husband, Rod, have five children, three beautiful daughters-in-law, and two grandchildren. They live in Lindon, Utah.
