Fishers-based Navient, a loan management, servicing and asset recovery company, announced April 25 that Julie Lee is the recipient of the company’s Navigator Leadership Award after having been with Navient for nearly 30 years.
The award is presented quarterly to one Navient leader who demonstrates excellence in business, people, results and personal leadership.
Lee’s first experience with the company came as a summer clerk in 1982. Since then, she’s worked in numerous positions and is currently the director of compliance.
“My advice to others in to practice the habit of going the extra mile,” she stated. “Step outside your comfort zone to take on new challenges. New experiences lead to new skills and will set you on the course for greater responsibilities.”
Lee also serves as a board member and is a past president of the Student Loan Servicing Alliance, a nonprofit membership organization of student loan servicers and software providers who work together to promote best practices. She has two rescue dogs, Shelby and Sophie, and volunteers at pet rescue centers in Indianapolis. Lee earned her bachelor’s degree from Indiana University.
