Julia Trujillo Luengo came to Maine from Gran Canaria, Spain (one of the Canary Islands off the coast of Morocco), while in high school on an exchange program. She attended USM, has worked for the state, and now is employed by the City of Portland as the Director of the Office of Economic Opportunity.
Her new office is to work with immigrants, people of multicultural backgrounds and youth to help them to feel like Portland is their home so they will stay and contribute their gifts to our community. Likewise, she is charged with attracting others to this great city. She leads with respect for the organizations and people who have created good systems already and hopes to support and unify. She recognizes an urgency to her work and tells about her mapping of current resources before charting a bold future with and for Portland.
Julia is married to a Maine native and they raise their young daughters in Portland.
