Julie Coulombe studied Language and Literature, German and Tourism in Canada. Living in Europe brought her to explore several fields and to develop extensive experience in international work environments. In 2016, she took a fixed-term contract of six years as Senior Finance and Administrative Associate for the UNU-FLORES (Germany). She worked with the Finance and Administration unit and was involved in daily financial, human resources, procurement, travel, event, and general administration activities. She also acted as administrative focal point for educational programmes and supported the institute with restructuring activities and process development to improve daily operations. With her knowledge and experience, Ms. Coulombe supports UNU-INWEH, and more specifically the HR Coordinator and the Finance Officer, in their daily tasks.
