Julianne's service, hospitality, positive attitude and contagious smile make her so deserving of this recognition. Learn more about Julianne:
Why did you become a Magnet Member?
I wanted to expand my network and make not only work connections but friends as well! I was looking for something I connected with and Magnet was the perfect fit.
Why have you continued to be a member?
The events are amazing. Volunteering with the CIC opens my eyes to organizations that are really making a difference in our community. The social events always introduce me to new restaurants & bars, as well as Madisonians who are rocking the young professional stage and I love meeting new people! Also everyone is interested in making sustainable relationships and that's something that can never be undervalued.
Tell us something that might surprise us about you.
I lived, worked & went to college in Halifax Nova Scotia - it's one of my favorite cities in the whole world.
What's your dream, or next step in your career?
Ellen DeGeneres. She can make anyone smile, she gets to meet awesome people, she dances everyday, she inspires others, and she gets to do all of that while wearing jeans, a button up and keds. That's the life.
What has been your proudest professional accomplishment?
I worked at a nonprofit before my job at The Madison Club, and while I was the fundraising and event coordinator there, we raised $50,000 more dollars than the year before I started. And that was an amazing feeling.
What's your life philosophy, what drives how you live and why?
Don't get that tattoo - you'll hate it in 5 years.
Make sure you say ‘hi’ to Julianne at the next event!
