Miss Maine USA – Juliana


Juliana’s family connection to Alzheimer’s Disease ignited her passion to find a cure. She serves as a community educator, speaking about what Alzheimer’s Disease is and how to help prevent it. Juliana traveled to Capitol Hill to lobby for access to new FDA approved drugs.

Pursuing two master’s degrees in theology and mental health counseling, she hopes to help people lead impactful lives. Juliana holds a BA in Communication from the College of Charleston. She was on the Dean’s- and President’s- List and was in national communication honor society, Lambda Pi Eta. She has shared her thoughts on modern culture as an on-air contributor.

After MUO incited a major rule change, Juliana is making history as the first married woman to compete in Miss USA! Her April wedding was featured exclusively in People Magazine Online. She hopes breaking this barrier will encourage women to continue chasing their dreams.
