Born and raised in Edmonton, Veronica is passionate about connecting with the Edmonton community and supporting treasures like the NAPDA and the Pioneer’s Cabin. Armed with a Bachelor’s degree in Art History from the University of Toronto Veronica has an interest in preserving and sharing our City’s history and connecting those stories with today’s context.

The Pioneers Cabin is an extraordinary landmark nestled within the River Valley, after hosting her wedding there in 2018, the Cabin holds a special place in Veronica’s heart and she believes it should be enjoyed by all Edmontonians for years to come.
