Salinas – The Central Coast YMCA recently appointed Julie Campisi, who lives in Carmel Valley, as the Regional Sports Coordinator for Monterey and Salinas YMCA.
Coordinating all athletic programs at two locations, Campisi has extensive experience in PE and graduated from San Jose State University in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in athletics and a PE education qualification.
She taught at Vista Verde Middle School, then Oak Elementary School, both in Greenfield, before spending two years at Hollister’s RO Hardin Elementary School.
“I come from a physical education background and I program and teach physically. Now that I take a step back and implement and deliver these programs, it’s a nice challenge for me. said Campisi. “I am still learning everything.”
Born and raised in San Jose, Kampisi said he knew the YMCA in his youth.
“When I was a kid I always went to the YMCA in Santa Clara,” she said. “When I was old enough, I participated in various fitness programs with my mom.”
Kampisi has also been actively involved in a variety of youth sports such as karate, swimming, soccer and gymnastics, bringing love to the sport.
“I especially enjoyed the archery and horseback riding which takes place every summer at Girl Scout Camp,” she said.
Campisi currently volunteers with a Northern California Girl Scout based in Pescadero, teaching archery to youth ages 8 to 17 at Camp Butano Creek in the Santa Cruz Mountains. She has also been a Girl Scout for over 10 years as a young girl, especially in their equestrian program. She now wishes she had the time and the opportunity to do more.
“It’s one of my biggest passions,” Campisi said.
She lives in Carmel Valley with her partner. Her interests include archery, rock climbing for several years, and jujutsu martial arts which she has been practicing for a few months.
