Since before she was born, Veronica was destined to be an artist (no matter how much she tried to pretend she would eventually become a lawyer). Veronica’s parents met while performing at Radio City Music Hall, and she spent her childhood alternating between spending time in the audience and in the pit of Broadway houses. Eventually, she moved from watching other create art to creating art herself. She was lucky enough to have the opportunity to learn from the best of the best in New York City and Chicago, and made it her mission to learn as much as possible about performance both on and off stage.
As a performer, Veronica is attracted to art in all stages and forms. Whether it is a reading of a new play or a full-scale opera, she is driven by finding the truth in the story. Veronica performs consistently throughout New York City and Northern New Jersey and is always searching for new opportunities to hone her skills. Some of her favorite roles include Johanna (Sweeney Todd), Georgie (Spike Heels), April (Company), Cecily Cardew (The Importance of Being Earnest), Lydia (girl.), Giulietta (I Capuleti e i Montecchi), Olympia (Les contes d'Hoffmann), Susanna (Le nozze di Figaro), Lucy (The Telephone), Musetta (La Bohème), and title roles in Alcina and Semiramide.
Veronica is the Executive Director and Founder of Eccentric Theater Company (ETC.), a collection of artists dedicated to pushing the boundaries of a standard theater company. We believe that the lines between different facets of art are currently too rigid, and we aspire to create a space where an audience member can experience a play, a jazz club, an art gallery, and sometimes all three at the same time!
Veronica has an MBA with Honors from Quantic School of Business and Technology, a highly-selective, skill-oriented business school program which is free for all selected students. She recently completed her MA in Business Design and Arts Leadership at SCAD through their e-learning program. She majored in “learning to lie” (a triple major in theater, psychology, and legal studies with a concentration in marketing) in her undergraduate studies at Northwestern University. She is the President of the Board of Governors for Ridgewood Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company and a member of the Marketing Committee for the Off-Broadway League.
When not working, performing, or studying, Veronica enjoys watching Shondaland shows with a glass of white wine. (Sometimes she watches trashy reality TV instead, but that's a secret between us, okay?)
