Julieta Gesualdo-GallupProgram Director
Julieta was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She was born into a family of artists, teachers, and hospitality workers from whom she learned about values, work ethics, and to fight for what you want. Julieta studied to become an English teacher and an Argentinian Folklorist. During her schooling, she taught English as a second language and Argentinian Folklore at public and private schools. During her free-time, Julieta built on her dancing skills and became a Professional Tango Dancer winning the title of best Tango Salon dance couple in 2016. In November of 2016 Julieta moved to Park City, Utah. She left everything and everyone behind, venturing into a cultural education experience as well as a mental health healing journey. Since then, Julieta has worked for local companies and it has become clear that her “WHY” in life is to help others and make a difference while giving back to the community that has welcomed her. In 2020 Julieta re-enrolled in college and is excited to continue to help the community with her knowledge and skills. She joined CONNECT Summit County in February of 2022 and is thrilled to make an impact in the community. Julieta loves a good cup of coffee in the morning, singing with her twins, Isabella and Alexander, and spending time with friends and family.

She worked in Salt Lake City in the Emergency Department at Alta View Hospital for eight years. She then got a job as a psychiatric nurse working for Valley Behavioral Health in Park City and loved working with that population. Jackie went on to become a Certified Case Manager and learned all the ins and outs of the health insurance industry. She is very passionate about healthcare being holistic, affordable, and accessible and loves working in her community.

Lindsay HauptmanSpanish Peer Navigator
Lindsay is somewhat new to Park City, having grown up in the suburbs of New York City for most of her life. She recently graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in 2020, with a degree in Psychology and Spanish. During her time at school, Lindsay spent many hours volunteering for non-profits that focused on mental illness. She has also spent time as a teacher for children with disabilities in Guatemala, where she had the opportunity to become fluent in Spanish. Lindsay got her start officially working for the nonprofit sector when she joined the Summit County Clubhouse as a part-time Bilingual Social Practitioner in October of 2021. Once there, she confirmed her passion within the mental health sector and desire to do as much as she can to erase stigma and provide support within her community for anyone suffering from a mental illness. Lindsay is excited to continue this work at CONNECT Summit County, by focusing on the Spanish speaking community in Park City and providing resources in Spanish to assist the underserved Latinx population in getting the help they need. In her free time, Lindsay loves to ski, spend time with animals, and swim in the ocean, although she knows this is the wrong place for that.
