Julie Harris

Nebraska Bicycling Alliance
Executive Director
Omaha, Nebraska

Julie Tuttle Harris earned a Bachelors of Science in Political Science and Economics from the University of Nebraska at Kearney and a Masters in Public Administration from University of Nebraska at Omaha.

A native of Scottsbluff, Nebraska, Julie grew up in a neighborhood that made it safe and easy to walk and bike to school from kindergarten through her senior year of high school. Her first bike was a used purple Schwinn with a banana seat and a white handlebar basket from Sonny’s Bike Shop.  Until the glamour of a driver’s licenses intervened, Julie and her friends navigated around town via bicycle during the summers.

Although she is most passionate about using her commuter bike for transportation, Julie enjoys getting out on the open road with her road bike and has managed to crash her mountain bike into trees on more than one occasion.   

Julie is a member of several local and state organizations, steering committees and working groups that focus on active transportation and Complete Streets issues. She is a member of the board of directors for Heartland B-Cycle,  the former chair of the City of Omaha Mayor’s Active Living Advisory Committee, a bicycle safety Certified Instructor with the League of American Bicyclists. Her favorite job of all is being a mom of two amazing daughters with husband, Jeff.
