Julianne has been coming to camp since 2008. She is mom to Joy (age 16), and stepmom to Devan (11) and Jocelyn (9). She was on the CCG (Camp Coordinating Group) before it dissolved, and has been the YPP lifeguard for 5 years. What keeps her coming back to Camp are the deep connections with other people where she is able to be herself and express herself, especially through dance. What she loves most about DNE is the YPP program, because it is so important to empower children to be themselves in all capacities.
Julianne lives in Keen Valley, NY, where she teaches Elementary Spanish. Besides dancing, she loves skiing, snowboarding, hiking, sailing, being on the water, and spending time with her family.
