She is skilled in mixed methods research, including conducting site visits, interviews, and surveys, as well as SWOT, policy, and stakeholder analysis. She is fluent in Spanish.

Most recently she co-designed an evaluation for The Pulsera Project’s Social Impact Fund, which focuses on partnering with social change organizations in Nicaragua and promoting fair trade employment. She was also a researcher for the Andean Alliance for Sustainable Development (AASD) where she conducted policy analysis and created a survey to assess perceptions/practices related to organic agriculture in Peru. In her free time, Julianne loves attending arts and culture events, and discovering neighborhood live music venues.
