Veronica (she, her, hers) started working in the nonprofit sector three years ago where she was curating events for the donors and alumni of the institution. It was then that she knew she was meant to be in nonprofit world. In 2020 she joined the American Fundraising Professionals Minnesota IDEA Fellowship. During this fellowship she had the opportunity to meet many people who were truly passionate about the work they were doing, and it caused her to want to dig deeper into the philanthropy world and find a (work) home that fed her soul. Coming to Headwaters is about her being able to walk the walk of being a part of making change she is passionate about, putting power in the hands of the community to make the changes they see fit for themselves. To her, philanthropy isn’t about giving back it is about empowerment.
Veronica’s hands down favorite thing to do is eat and try new food. Breaking bread is her love language and nothing makes her happier than having people she loves around a table sharing a meal.
Contact Veronica if you need to schedule time with HFJ’s President or if you want to get in contact with someone at HFJ but you are unsure who you should talk to, she will guide you in the right direction.
