“I’m honored that the attorney general has chosen me to lead the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office,” Vogelsong-Parvin said. “I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with the investigators and prosecutors within the office, as well as the chiefs of police and law enforcement officers across the county.”

Vogelsong-Parvin has been overseeing the attorney general’s human trafficking unit since last April, and has handled several high-profile criminal matters. Most recently, she prosecuted the alleged operator of a human trafficking network in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, according to the release.

Vogelsong-Parvin has worked in a variety of roles in the Cumberland County Prosecutor’s Office since 2005 and was an assistant prosecutor who supervised trial teams for six years. She also worked as an attorney with the Special Victims’ Unit and has received specialized training in dealing with sexual assault and human trafficking. She was a senior trial attorney who prosecuted major cases, including homicides.

In 2015, Vogelsong-Parvin was presented the Outstanding Career Advocacy award by the County Prosecutors Association of New Jersey for her prosecution of a man who attacked and sexually assaulted multiple women in the city of Millville. She earlier served as a judicial law clerk for a New Jersey Superior Court judge in Cumberland.

A graduate of Rowan University and Villanova University’s School of Law, she has also served as the Cumberland County Bar Association president.
