Prosci Change Management Certification

Juliana de Affonseca came to Civitas with a deep and diverse professional history, including an undergraduate degree in international business and previous roles at a global public accounting firm, the US Embassy in Madrid, Spain, and a boutique consulting firm in Berlin, Germany.

During her time as a business advisory consultant in Philadelphia, Juliana met a friend-of-a-friend who was studying landscape architecture at Penn’s School of Design. She was captivated by the profession and, although it took a few years to act on this newfound interest, that meeting planted the seed of possibility. Ultimately, she moved to Fort Collins to pursue a master’s in landscape architecture at Colorado State University.

Today, Juliana works as a Landscape Designer, working on projects in both urban and suburban areas. Her focus on design details that excite the senses and create positive change in communities is at the heart of her work. She is committed to projects that serve as catalysts for this change and is passionate about making a meaningful impact in her field.


“I love being a Mom and I enjoy rock climbing, which allows me to recharge and connect with nature. I approach it much like I do my work, taking things step by step, managing risk – and fear – as I go.”
