A St. Louis native, Julian has worked with nonprofits in the St. Louis community for almost 10 years in the areas of mental health, intimate partner violence, conservation, disaster response, and youth services. This summer, Julian is excited to be interning with the RDA, an organization dedicated to building shared data networks to better inform service providers, helping to design a local data infrastructure. Last summer, she enjoyed tracking state and local policy with the St. Louis County Executive's Office as a Policy Intern. Julian completed two terms of service with AmeriCorps St. Louis Emergency Response Team (ERT) where she deployed to multiple tornados in Missouri and worked alongside the Missouri Department of Conservation, Department of Natural Resources, US Forest Service, Great Rivers Greenway, Forest Park Forever, and many other environmental conservation agencies. In 2015, Julian worked as a tree-planter for 3 months in Ontario, Canada replanting logging sites; this led her to pursue the same work in Australia in 2016.
