Veronica received a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a Master of Fine Arts from Princeton University, in Music Composition. She studied composition and computer/electronic music techniques with Paul Lansky, Steven Mackey and Milton Babbitt, with a special compositional focus on "installation music," that fits a particular environment. Her music has been featured at exhibits, including installations at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago.

In addition to teaching courses in pedagogical and creative uses of music technology, Veronica's staff position places special focus on assisting faculty members university-wide with curricular technology needs, particularly related to multimedia and social computing. She was musical director for DePauw Theatre's production of The Who's Tommy, composed installation music for DePauw's Quarry Sounds event in the Nature Park, and regularly performs piano and organ with The HausKatz, a Greencastle-based blues/jazz combo.
