Julia Schweikert

Program Manager

Julia Schweikert, CEPA Program ManagerJulia was born in Heilbronn and raised in the beautiful Weinsberger Tal, more precisely in Obersulm, not far from the CEPA Headquarter in Ingersheim.

Her fascination for other languages and cultures already started in school, led to her successfully completing her Abitur in English and French, which afterwards became her fields of study. In addition to various courses and lectures about the English language, literature and culture, she chose French as her minor and also took some language classes in Spanish. Julia earned her Bachelor’s degree in English Studies at the University of Heidelberg in the spring of 2017.

However, she is not only interested in other languages and cultures, but also very open-minded and enjoys meeting new people, especially people from abroad. Before she started her job at CEPA, Julia spent six weeks in Tilburg, The Netherlands. Even though it was just for a few weeks, it was a valuable opportunity for her personally, as spending time abroad is an experience you will never forget.

Julia first got in touch with the tourism sector when her family started to build and rent holiday apartments. She enjoys being in touch with the guests and doing anything to make their stay as pleasant as possible, which is exactly what she is aiming to bring to her work at CEPA. She is very excited about being able to work in an international environment, making use of her language skills, and planning study abroad programs – all at the same time!

In her free time, Julia enjoys both sports and music; she plays tennis, is a big ice hockey fan and enjoys going to concerts as well as making music herself. Her native language is German; she is fluent in English and has a reasonable command of both the French and the Spanish language.
