Juliana Rowland is an amazing force of positivity and connection. As a member of the Hollis Brookline Rotary Club, she has – nearly single-handedly – created and maintains an alternative news source for the towns of Hollis and Brookline NH (www.hollisbrooklinenewsonline.com) as a way of providing news and connection for the two towns. She also created the Flower Project in partnership with Trader Joe’s, distributing flowers throughout Hollis, Brookline, and Nashua to thank people, to recognize them for their efforts, or simply to brighten days (see here for related story). Another way Julie provides connection and positivity is through the Rotary Youth Exchange Program. As the inbound coordinator for Rotary District 7870 (and past host mom), Julie helps bring a dozen or so international students each year into the southern NH/VT areas to spend a year in the US, developing relationships and understanding that then resonates throughout the world. Her professional life Julie is ‘helping others achieve more than they imagined’ through her work as a consultant focused on the dental and medical fields. In her spare time you will find Julie doing roadside cleanup, hiking trails, or kayaking throughout New England.
