Ed Schafer.

“Julie brings a wealth of experience to our team from both the private and public sectors. She has done a quality job as deputy state director, and I look forward to working with her in her new role,” Hoeven said. 

            Fedorchak lives in Bismarck. She and her husband Mike have three children, and are involved in a number of church and community organizations.
