Julia Penca

Assistant to Welcome Center Manager

Julia’s first experience on the Farm was as a kindergartener on a field trip in 1982 and since that day she has always had a love of the Farm.  She graduated from UVM with a bachelor’s in Communication Science in 2000, and has had a varied background since. She has done everything from working in a flower shop to being a banker. Currently she assists the Manager of the Welcome Center at Shelburne Farms (and she makes wedding cakes on the side).  You will most likely see her behind the register at the Welcome Center, or meet her as the Participant Coordinator for the Harvest Festival.
