Julia E. Hampton, owner of Julia E. Hampton, CPA, PC

Julia Hampton has been heavily involved in the growth of Velocity Lee’s Summit and serves as the treasurer of the Board of Directors.

As a small business owner and entrepreneur herself, Hampton said the mission of Velocity is personal to her as she continues to not only see growth in the Lee’s Summit business community, but in her own business as well.

“Serving on the board for Velocity has opened up opportunities for me to not only meet and connect with other entrepreneurs, but to be a part of something from the very beginning,” she said. “Velocity isn’t just a concept any longer. We have grown into a formidable organization that continues to offer timely programming and support for startups and entrepreneurs of all varieties.”

As the president and owner of Julia E. Hampton, CPA, PC, Julia can be found in many corners of Lee’s Summit and Jackson County. She’s involved with the Lee’s Summit Chamber of Commerce as the chair of the Ambassador Committee, on the Truman Heartland Community Foundation board and involved with Downtown Lee’s Summit Main Street. Her CPA firm was named the 2014 Chamber business of the year in her category.

Julia would like to see continuing education and increased funding for Velocity and, ultimately, paid staff to help encourage further entrepreneurial endeavors in and around Lee’s summit.

She has a 26-year old daughter, Kate, active parents in Bette and Bill Hampton and enjoys biking and attending Mizzou sporting events.
