She has degrees in vocal performance from Yale School of Music, Peabody Conservatory and Western Michigan University.

Childcare Experience:  Julianne has been caring for children since she started babysitting in high school. She is the oldest of three kids with a big extended family which gave her lots of opportunities to care for cousins as well as neighborhood kids. She has performed and lectured about opera to groups of children with the Meet the Artist at Lincoln Center Series and as an outreach artist with The New York City Opera. Recently, she has cared for families with multiple children ranging from newborn through school aged. She was as a regular caregiver in NYC for a little boy from the time he was 6 months to 1 ½ years. She loves to bring music into the babysitting setting and often sings and dances with the kids. She is a proud aunt to seven nieces and nephews.

Julianne is an avid reader who enjoys traveling and has a great interest in other cultures and languages. She speaks German and a bit of French, having performed in those countries, and has familiarity with Italian as well. She loves being around kids, and misses her nieces and nephews terribly.

Personal Quote:  Kids are a blessing and an inspiration. It is so rewarding to me to contribute to, and be an active participant in, their growth both culturally and socially. To quote the song Getting to Know You, “by your pupils you are taught.”  In my own life I have found this to true and get as much from them as they do from me.
