Volunteer Fellows Expand Holistic Defense Reach

OPD is pleased to welcome fellows from Louisiana Delta Service Corps, an AmeriCorps program, and Jesuit Volunteer Corps. The fellows provide vital services in various branches of the office and are a crucial part to the success of OPD’s holistic defense practices.

Kim Diemer, Louisiana Delta Service Corps fellow, is a 2012 graduate from Tulane University with a degree in Gender and Sexuality Studies. She previously interned with Client Services, and jumped at the chance to return to OPD, this time advocating for qualifying clients under the new Louisiana Act 402.

Mairead Kennelly is a Jesuit Volunteer Corps fellow also working with Client Services advocating for clients in all aspects of their case. Originally from Rye, NY, Mairea graduated last May from Boston College where she studied English and Sociology.

 

 

Claire Gutekanst is a Jesuit Volunteer Corps fellow and hails from Central Massachusetts.  She is a recent American University graduate, who majored in Political Science and Journalism.  After interning for non- profits in DC, she joins her fellow colleagues in OPD’s client services. 

The volunteers join AmeriCorps fellow Noelle Deltufo who has been an integral part of the social work department for the past year working to grow the reach of OPD’s holistic defense practices.
