Prior to joining Premier, Juliano retired from Merck after a successful career of more than 30 years. During her time at Merck, Juliano worked for MSD, an innovative, global healthcare leader that is committed to improving health and well-being around the world.

Juliano has firsthand experience with the rapidly changing healthcare environment and has worked directly with the key stakeholders, including health plans, medical groups and evolving health systems. She has been recognized for her deep understanding and knowledge of the U.S. healthcare business and her constant focus on customer and patient needs. She also has extensive experience in account management, leading both national account executives and customer managers in managed markets for over 10 years. 

Juliano graduated magna cum laude, with a degree in health science from Seton Hall University. She also obtained her master’s degree in exercise physiology/cardiac rehabilitation from East Stroudsburg University. She has participated in the Executive Education at the Harvard Business School of Harvard University and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. She currently serves on the Board of SAMA and received her SAMA certification in 2016.

Juliano has been involved in community service for the last 25 years. She served on the Board of Directors for the North Penn Senior Center for five years. Additionally, Juliano has been an advisor to The Women’s Place in Bucks County. She has had extensive experience in mentoring young women in professional development. She served as a mentor for the Women Unlimited, Inc. for the last five years, and, in 2017, was an active member of the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA).
