Veronica French, Office Manager

Veronica French joined the Safe & Just Michigan team as our office manager in 2019. She is responsible for making sure things run smoothly inside our office and providing support to the events we sponsor around the state.

“I look forward to being at an organization that is working to find ways to better the community and better people’s lives,” Veronica said. “I want to help people see better options to the way things are now.”

A Hartland native, Veronica worked at the MSU Museum, where she had worked on collections, exhibits and administration. She soon discovered her preference was working with people — not museum objects. Her work on the museum’s “Finding Our Voice: Sister Survivors Speak” exhibit, reflecting on the crisis of sexual violence centered on the MSU campus in recent years and curated by the survivors and their allies, was particularly meaningful.

That experience made her want to work more deeply on social justice issues and led her to Safe & Just Michigan. She wants to see her home state become a place where survivors of crime and justice-involved people alike live in safer, stronger communities.

She is a graduate of Michigan State University.

Veronica lives in Lansing.
