Julianna joined the team in 2022 as the Iowa State Fair’s Sponsorship Director. Year-round, she is responsible for securing and managing all of the sponsors for the Fair. As a champion of the Fair since a young age, she believes that it is the best reflection of Iowa’s rich culture and quality of life.
Originally from West Des Moines, Julianna lived in Tampa, Florida for seven years and graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University, where she received a degree in Business Management and played Division 1 tennis. The unique Iowa community called her home in the summer of 2018, when she served as Volunteer Relations intern for the Foundation. Prior to her current role, Julianna was the Volunteer Engagement Coordinator at Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity, managing volunteers, events, and sponsor programs.
Outside of work, Julianna enjoys spending time with her family, baking cookies and cakes, playing tennis (or any outdoor activity), and being involved in the church. She is passionate about serving people and is grateful to contribute to what makes the Iowa State Fair the greatest Fair in the world.
