If you ask about JULIANN GELDNER’s business style as Chief Operating Officer and Legal Counsel at The Geldner Center in Hinsdale and Chicago, you’re likely to get a nuanced response, one that praises her uncanny knack for marrying the art of collaborative participation with, when necessary, a dash of aggressive persuasion. JuliAnn, however, would rather shift the spotlight to her personal hero and role model—mother-in-law, Dr. Barbara Geldner, a Holocaust survivor who endured Auschwitz and then Bergen-Belzen. Barbara then went on to medical school and became a successful Ophthalmologist after emigrating to the United States with her family. “ Barbara Geldner is my role model because she was a survivor, broke through impossible barriers, and was fierce about her freedom, her family, and her profession,” says JuliAnn, who earned her JD at University of Illinois Law School and her LLM at Loyola University Law School. JuliAnn is passionate about her family and her community. She has held numerous volunteer positions over the years and currently volunteers as President of her synagogue, Temple Har Zion, in River Forest. She and her family are third and fourth generation members of Temple Har Zion.
