Having grown up in the hotel industry traveling the world, Juliana Manion-Copley brings a wealth of knowledge in diverse areas of business from marketing to special events and finances. Under her leadership, Copley’s on Palm Canyon is quickly rising as the premier eatery in the popular desert locale beloved by locals and visitors alike.
In her early years within the hospitality industry, Juliana learned the hotel side of operations and sales at the Hyatt Regency Maui. From there, she moved to Australia where she created new marketing strategies for the Asian Market for a Charter Cruise Corporation. Her background in Hotel Sales, coordination and producing Incentive Programs, as well as her Destination Management experience made her an excellent candidate for a position in San Francisco as the Director of Operations for a multimillion-dollar communications agency.
Juliana’s career as an entrepreneur began in 2001, when she co-founded a Destination Management Company in Hawaii, which she sold several years later when she moved to Palm Springs to open a restaurant with her husband Andrew Copley and good friend Greg Butterfield.
Juliana is an active member of the Coachella Valley business community, where she serves on the board of Palm Springs Hospitality Association and the Palm Springs Desert Resorts Restaurant Association and was one of the founders of Palm Springs Restaurant Week. In recognition of her efforts to grow the local culinary community, Juliana and her husband Chef Andrew Copley were named “Restaurateurs of the Year” by the Desert Resorts Convention and Visitors’ Authority.
