Maju Varghese Wife, Mother And Family

Julie Varghese is currently the Chief Administrative Officer at Atlantic Council, a think tank and conclave for global affairs, politics and leadership. Her educational background includes politics from the University of Pittsburgh. With over 20 years of experience behind her, Julie is a recognised figure in the domain of non-profits and healthcare.

She has previously been attached to New York-Presbyterian Queens Hospital and the Smithsonian Institution in senior staff positions. She joined the Atlantic Council in 2013 as events director, charting an upward growth in various roles including Vice President for international issues. Her expertise covers large ground, from fundraising to social projects.

Julie has also been on the policy staff teams of former US Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton. It was during the presidential election campaign for Al Gore that Varghese and Julie, who share a professional field, met. Julie has advocated support for Biden and Kamala Harris and often amplifies her husband’s Indian origins on social media.

Varghese has been vocal about his parents’ roots on public platforms. He calls them “heroes” who “gave me a shot at an amazing life and a chance to chase every dream.”

The family immigrated to the US after his mother Saroja, who then worked with the Indian Air Force, shifted base in the 1970s. She further worked as a nurse in the US and since her retirement has taken to writing in Malayalam. Saroja had expressed pride in her son when it was announced that he was one of Biden’s most sought-after candidates for deputy assistant.
