The Board and Staff of the Menokin Foundation are pleased to introduce our newest team member.
Juliana has joined the Menokin staff as Development Coordinator and hit the ground running on Monday.
“I moved to the Northern Neck from the mountains of western North Carolina, and although the landscape is different, I’ve found the same commitment to history, culture, and conservation here that I did in Appalachia. I’m excited to explore the region and get more involved in the community.”
Prior to Menokin, Juliana was with the University of North Carolina at Asheville, where she served in the Division of University Advancement. Her work at UNC Asheville centered on engaging alumni, donors, and community members to help them feel connected to the mission and vision of the university. In addition, she previously worked on two local political campaigns where she gained valuable experience in community outreach, relationship building, and advocacy.
Originally from New Jersey, Juliana graduated from UNC Asheville in 2015 with degrees in political science and French. Her undergraduate studies focused primarily on American government and comparative political theory. She is an avid New York Mets baseball fan and enjoys good books, long hikes, and exploring new places. A young non-profit professional and lifelong lover of history, Juliana is honored to be a part of the team working to preserve Menokin.
