Veronica enjoys the challenges of wearing multiple journalistic hats. She began her journalism career as news reporter, news writer and host at OMNI Television. She moved on to work as a TV producer at CBC for “The Hour” with George Stroumboulopoulos. The first interview she was assigned to produce on the The Hour was Hollywood royalty - Michael Douglas! Now, Veronica is back in front of the camera as a vivacious TV host and she also works as a producer and writer.

Veronica is passionate about the media's role in society and is dedicated to giving back to the community by working with a variety of charities and organizations.
