Julie Veronese, Commissioner

Julie Veronese is a native San Franciscan. For the past 15 years, she has consulted and collaborated on a variety of projects including several notable fundraising events throughout San Francisco for the Renaissance Project where she served as Director of Development under Angela Alioto at the Archdiocese of San Francisco. 

Prior to her work with the Archdiocese, Julie was a partner and administrator at RMA Consultants, a sales, marketing and consulting firm for residential builders, developers, and investors, representing high profile clients such as Catellus Development Corporation, San Francisco Planning Department, Four Seasons Private Residences -Seattle, and Charles Schwab.  Her recent background includes 16 years as co-owner of Verotto Wines, distributed locally in the San Francisco Bay Area and selectively to clients in Europe. Julie is currently an independent consultant for a broad range of business printing and marketing products. She recently assisted numerous trades during Covid-19 in purchasing mandatory PPE, supplies and equipment to meet their state and local guidelines for reopening their businesses.

Julie has worked on two San Francisco Mayoral campaigns and a Senate campaign fundraising and grassroots community outreach. Three years ago, Julie co-founded the National First Responders Fund with her husband Joe Alioto Veronese (former San Francisco Fire Commissioner, Police Commissioner and current Civil Rights Attorney). The NFRF raises funds through events and corporate sponsorships to send first responders suffering from PTSD to specialized programs. The organization has raised close to $1,000,000 in the past 3 years. She is also currently training to be a court appointed advocate for an abused and/or neglected child in the foster care program through SF CASA.

Julie is a strong proponent of the arts and advocates for arts education for underprivileged children. She received her undergraduate degree in Ethnic Studies from University of California at Berkeley. She resides in District 2 with her husband Joe Alioto Veronese and their 11-year-old son Augustus. They have been dedicated supporters to many youth and family organizations throughout the years, such as the Raphael House, Omega Boys Club, Camp Okizu and Star Home among others.
