Julie Haney is a licensed architect and earned her Bachelor of Architecture degree from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 1990. While attending Cal Poly Julie’s interest focused on sustainable design, she studied Village Homes and energy efficient architecture. While at Cal Poly she was also a founding member of the campus recycling coalition and alternative energy club. Julie’s 4th year of architecture school was spent in Denmark studying energy efficient design and lighting.

Inspired by the Danish bicycle culture, Julie and her husband, Bill Dakin, moved to Davis in 1992. She founded JMH Architecture in 2004 and focused on residential remodeling and energy efficient design. Julie’s interest in cohousing led to her being the architect for the Glacier Circle Senior Cohousing Community in Davis.

Julie enjoys living in an energy efficient solar home, creating mixed media sculptures, collage, painting, taking pictures, going on long walks, hiking, gardening, cooking, biking, skiing, camping, and going on adventures.   Being on the Cool Davis Board is one way that she feels she can contribute locally to help protect the environment and work towards a more sustainable global future.
