Veronica found her passion for books and writing very early on. She would come home every day after school and avoid doing her homework by either working on her latest story or by reading one of her favorite books instead. Luckily, this worked out for her as she received her Bachelor of Arts degree in creative writing with a minor in sociology from the University of North Texas in 2015.
After college, Veronica moved to Durham, North Carolina and started writing for various publications. She did a few movie reviews here, a few essays there. But it wasn't until she became a writer for Sarah Scoop that she realized she really loves being a lifestyle writer. She went on to become the books editor for Sarah Scoop and a contributing writer for publications such as Book Riot and Screen Rant. Now, she's an associate editor for The Mighty where she writes for people living with health conditions.
Veronica is not shy about her health. She grew up with chronic pain and was later diagnosed with myofascial pain syndrome and fibromyalgia. While this makes things complicated sometimes, it doesn't mean she's not driven. In fact, she even ran a half marathon one year after surgery in 2016. (This is MAJOR!) Her own history of chronic illness has given her a great perspective on health which has helped her succeed in her role at The Mighty.
While she loves being an editor, Veronica has realized that she is interested in various types of writing. Having grown up thinking she was going to be a screenwriter, she realized halfway through college that she wanted to write books for kids instead. Her dream is to become a middle grade author, as well as progress in her career as an editor.
In her spare time, Veronica enjoys movie nights with her partner and her dog, Potato. She is a major foodie and enjoys eating out, as well as cooking at home. She loves football (Go Pack Go!), exploring her Vietnamese heritage, and spending time with friends.
