Veronica’s career in education started in her hometown of Caracas, Venezuela when her mother, who at the time ran an ESL center for children and young adults, asked her to fill in for an absent teacher. Veronica liked teaching so much that she decided to get her own class. In 2006, she moved to the United States and attended school for a career in Early Childhood Education. After graduating from Middlesex Community College she continued her education at Fitchburg State University. In 2011, Veronica was awarded Outstanding Student in a Minor of Spanish, later that year she graduated with an Interdisciplinary Studies degree including a Minor in Spanish. During the school year of 2011-2012, Veronica worked as a substitute teacher in Andover Public Schools. In April 2012, she self-published the first book in the children’s Spanish series "Veo, Veo," which currently includes ten books. In 2012, Veronica was hired to be the Spanish teacher for grades 1-8 at a private Catholic school in North Andover.
In June 2013, she created, coordinated, and volunteer managed a free Latin dance event for the community of the city of Lawrence, MA. The event called "Rumba en el Parque" took place every Thursday night at the common park and it lasted the entire summer of 2013 and 2014.
