Veronica Duron-February 2009

San Antonio, TX
Education: B.A., Sociology & History
University of Texas at Austin
Placement: Congressman Solomon P. Ortiz (TX-27)

Veronica is placed in the Office of Congressman Ortiz D- TX 27. As a legislative fellow, she is tasked with researching and analyzing education and immigration policy. She is the liaison between constituents/advocates from the District and federal projects. She advises the Congressman on the needs of the district related to her respective policy areas.

In the summer of 2007, Veronica received her Bachelors degree in sociology and history, with a minor in Mexican American studies from the University of Texas at Austin. During her tenure as an undergraduate, she was fully immersed in campus and community life. She served in leadership and organizational capacities in: Kappa Delta Chi Sorority, Inc., Latino Leadership Council, United Greek Council, UT Leadership Board, and Order of Omega National Honor Society. Her commitment to public service is demonstrated through her work with the American Cancer Society, Hands on Housing, Latinitas, and the Austin Nursing Center. Her professional experience that served as a microcosm for her work on Capitol Hill was her work as a legislative intern for Texas State Representative Paul Moreno (D-17) and as a project associate at an immigration and family law practice.

Veronica’s interest in politics grew out of her desire to create a more equitable society for underserved communities. Following her CHCI Public Policy Fellowship, Veronica hopes to remain in Washington, D.C., and gain additional governmental and non-profit experience as well as receive her Master’s in public policy. During Veronica’s spare time she likes to play and watch sports, travel and window shop.
