Juliane Doscher joined Sasakawa USA as a Program Assistant in July 2016 and began working as Executive Assistant to the CEO in April 2017. In October 2018, she was promoted to Executive Assistant to the CEO and Alumni Program Coordinator. Before joining Sasakawa USA, she worked at the Japan-America Society of Washington D.C., where she helped prepare and execute the Sakura Matsuri-Japanese Street Festival, the single largest one-day celebration of Japanese Culture in the U.S., as part of the National Cherry Blossom Festival.
