Veronica is a member of the Class of 2020 at the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix. She graduated from Barnard College in 2016 and received a BA in Neuroscience. Living in New York City and attending a women’s college sparked her passion to help the underserved and advance the representation of women in the field of medicine. At Barnard, she was very involved in neuroscience research about stress in adolescents, served as a tutor to a local middle school and was a TA for a neuroscience lab course. Additionally, she was captain of the Ultimate Frisbee team of Columbia University and promoted the involvement of younger children of both genders in the sport through various community outreach clinics throughout the city. At the UA medical school, she volunteers for two clinics offering services to the homeless and underserved community in downtown Phoenix. In her free time, she enjoys running, reading and trivia.
