Julia Daly, B.A. — 2010
After graduating from the University of Oregon in 2010 with a BA in International Studies and a minor in Spanish, Julia decided to pursue a Masters in Development Practice from Trinity College Dublin from 2012 – 2014. In 2013, Julia traveled to Rwanda to work alongside conservationists in the Volcanoes National Park working to sustainably use tourism dollars to protect the park which is home to hundreds of mountain gorillas – the only place where they live naturally in the wild. After completing her Masters, Julia interned with the United Nations Small Island Developing States team in New York focusing on development and environmental initiatives and conferences. In 2015, Julia returned to Oregon to work for Portland-based vacation rental company, Vacasa. She now works as the International Operations Manager overseeing operations for the company’s Latin American and European portfolios.
