Veronica graduated from the University of Dallas in May 2023 with a B.A. in English and an Italian concentration. She grew up in the Black Hills of South Dakota, although her adoption of “y’all” while living in Dallas threatens to claim her as a Texas resident. During college, she worked as an Undergraduate Admissions Intern and was involved in various student organizations, including serving as the President of the Pro-Life Club and the Sigma Tau Delta English Honor Society. Both her education at UD and upbringing fostered her faith and a spirit of life-long learning, so she is excited to spend her first post-graduate year working with the Angelicum Thomistic Institute. She looks forward to being involved in TI events and hopes to utilize the year abroad to improve her Italian proficiency!
