Julienne will be the first out LGBTQ person elected in Voorhees!
Julienne Verdi is a nonprofit consultant and attorney in private practice admitted in both New York and New Jersey. As a nonprofit consultant, Julienne is experienced in helping not-for-profit organizations manage their day-to-day operations, develop and implement long-term strategic plans, as well as support organizations’ advocacy, government relations, and grassroots organizing efforts. In her law practice Julienne provides transactional legal services to small businesses, nonprofits, and individuals.
Originally from New York City and the mother of four young children, Julienne moved to Voorhees in large part due to the strong reputation of the Voorhees public school system. Julienne is a product of New York City public schools and is a graduate of Brooklyn Law School where she was an associate managing editor of the Brooklyn Journal of International Law, Chair of Brooklyn Law Students for Reproductive Justice, and recipient of the Platinum Public Service Award and Evelyn Reid Memorial Prize. Julienne received a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Special Honors from CUNY Hunter College, where she graduated magna cum laude and was a member of the Thomas Hunter Honors Program.
Prior to starting her own law practice and nonprofit consulting firms, Julienne served as the Director of Government Relations at Planned Parenthood of New York City, a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Francine A. Schott in New Jersey Superior Court, and completed a post-graduate legal fellowship at Safe Horizon’s Immigration Law Project where she provided immigration services to victims of crime.
Julienne is running for a seat on the Voorhees Board of Education because she believes a strong, evidence-based, comprehensive and inclusive public school education should be a fundamental right of every child and looks forward to bringing her experience, education and passion for advocacy to the Voorhees Board of Education.
