Veronica is a US Navy veteran who participated in Operation Iraqi Freedom 1 & 2. She was stationed onboard the USS Bataan, an amphibious assault ship for the entire time of her enlistment. As a boatswains mate, she participated in a great deal of shipboard operations including driving the ship itself! During her time in service she earned her Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist (ESWS) pin, Battle E ribbon, and humanitarian service medal. After being honorably discharged Veronica returned to Southern California, which is where she is from, to attend college at California State University Fullerton. She graduated, with honors, with her Bachelors of Science degree in Kinesiology. Growing up, Veronica trained in ballet and jazz, but it had been several years since she had done any performing. It was during her time at CSUF, that she reignited that passion and began booking acting and modeling work.

 

Some of her most recent credits include Lucifer (Netflix), Shameless (Showtime), and Death in Texas (Hulu). Last month she had the opportunity to perform with the acrobatic dance company, Diavolo, in a show which showcased veterans and their stories. The show, titled, S.O.S - Signs of Strength, was incredibly well received at The Wallis Performing Arts Center in Beverly Hills. Veronica lives in Los Angeles currently, with her husband Ronnie and her son Leonardo – both of which are her biggest supporters and inspirations.
