JFF Expands it US Program Team

We are delighted to announce the newest addition to the Junaid Family Foundation (JFF) team: Julie Novario, US Program Officer.

Before joining our foundation, Julie championed roles as a caregiver support advocate and childhood injury prevention coordinator at the esteemed University Hospitals of Cleveland. She is an alumna of Kent State University and holds a bachelor’s in science and a master’s in public health. Julie is also pursuing an MBA at Cleveland State University, demonstrating her passion for continued learning.

As JFF seeks to magnify its philanthropic endeavors within and beyond our core region, Julie’s experience working with vulnerable women and children in the greater Cleveland area will be instrumental. She will be pivotal in enhancing our mission delivery, ensuring our efforts resonate with a positive, lasting impact.

From the outset, Julie has showcased her commitment and adeptness to drive our programmatic goals forward. Her immediate immersion and determination are commendable. We are eager to witness how she further enriches our foundation in her new role. Warmest welcome, Julie!
