Veronica enjoys reading, learning and spending time with her family.

Fun F​​acts

Veronica had her sights set on a medical career from a young age because she liked the feeling she got from helping people. The best advice she has ever received is to “always treat people the way you’d want to be treated.” The most interesting place Veronica has visited is Cancun, Mexico. 

​Listening carefully to what my patients say helps me care for them more effectively. It’s always best to listen to my patients and I do my best.
