Djuna Osborne

Democratic Candidate for State House of Delegates, District 17

Before deciding to run for office, Djuna Osborne co-organized the Women’s March on Roanoke, an event that inspired over 4,000 people to gather to take a stand for their values. That event inspired her to run for the House of Delegates in the 17th district, a seat that went uncontested in 2015. With over a decade of experience as a clinical social worker treating patients with mental health and substance abuse issues, Djuna has seen first-hand the importance of quality, affordable health care, and programs that fund mental health services. Djuna is also the parent to two young daughters, and is a strong supporter of investing in the public education system to adequately prepare Virginia’s children to succeed in an increasingly competitive and technological job market. As well as managing a career and honoring her commitments to both her family and her community, Djuna is a regular volunteer at the Bradley Free Clinic, is a sustaining member of the Junior League of Roanoke Valley and an active member of the Kiwanis Club of Roanoke.
