U.S. Transportation Secretary Norman Y. Mineta announced the appointment of Julie Nelson as Chief Counsel for the Department’s Maritime Administration.

“Julie brings the right combination of experience to the job,” said Acting Maritime Administrator John Jamian. “Her experience in industry and her credentials in the field of Maritime and Admiralty Law give her a solid understanding of the work we do here,” he said.

Nelson joins MARAD from Oceaneering International, Inc., an ocean engineering development group, where she served as General Manager and Maritime/Contracts Attorney. Previously she served as General Counsel and General Manager for Nauticos Corporation of Hanover, MD, also a high-technology ocean engineering firm.

Nelson received her B.G.S. from Indiana University, and did graduate work at the Ecole National D’Administration in Paris. She received her J.D. from Indiana University School of Law, and her LL.M. in Admiralty from Tulane University School of Law.
