Julianne Sparkman joined the OneAscent team in October of 2021 and serves as an Executive Assistant. Her goal is simple: help her supervisors and her coworkers reach their goals so that they can further the Kingdom and live aligned.
Julianne was born and raised in Alabama. She moved to Southern California to pursue a degree in Merchandise Product Development and graduated from The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in 2015. For four years, she worked in the apparel industry and moved up from an Assistant Technical Designer to a Product Developer at PJ Salvage in Tustin, CA.
While she loved her time in California, Julianne missed the community that the South had to offer. After six years, she decided it was time to come back to her southern roots and moved back to Birmingham in the fall of 2019. She continued to work in apparel but knew that she would ultimately have to shift to a different career if she was to stay in Birmingham. She was so excited to hear about OneAscent and left her first interview elated to realize that a door had opened at a company whose values so closely aligned with her own.
When she isn’t working, you can find Julianne at her local Pure Barre studio taking her favorite classes or getting together with her friend group and enjoying her community. Julianne is a member of Oak Mountain Presbyterian Church, where she welcomes people regularly as a greeter and serves on the Young Professionals Serve Team.
