After former National Sports Center for the Disabled CEO Kim Easton resigned May 1, Julie Taulman took over in an interim role until she became the permanent CEO this month. She previously worked at the nonprofit as the business development director.

Taulman has 15 years of experience in the adaptive sports industry. She served as executive director of Steamboat Adaptive Recreational Sports for 12 years before resigning in 2020, a few months after the group revoked volunteer privileges for over 20 regular volunteers who signed a letter expressing concerns about the organization.

As the NSCD’s business development director, Taulman negotiated new sponsorships and implemented a funding strategy that has raised over $3 million. She has management experience in the nonprofit and corporate sectors, and during her time in Steamboat, led a capital campaign to fund the STARS Ranch property.

“I’m thrilled to serve as NSCD’s new CEO,” a news release quoted Taulman as saying. “I’ve worked with the NSCD for many years in various roles from a participant’s mom and volunteer to business development. In this new role, I am ready to continue growing the NSCD’s legacy of providing exceptional adaptive experiences to those living with disabilities.”
