Katy Shred Days are held quarterly on a Saturday morning 9am to noon. We have raised thousands for IMPACT A HERO. McDonalds Corporation is my partner for this event!

Katy Homebuyer and Seller Seminars – inaugural year 2015 – Veronica holds quarterly seminars on a Saturday morning 10:30am-12:30pm together with a panel of experts at a local Katy restaurant, provides the food, and valuable information to attendees about the ever changing real estate regulations. The seminars educate consumers, and sets reasonable expectations about the buying and selling process. Veronica assembled a panel of experts in: insurance, mortgage, title, home inspection and credit repair to speak to the audiences and  field questions.

2016 project development – Currently working on a plan for a quarterly project aimed at collecting food for the Katy Christian Ministries Food Pantry. Over 500 families are being served by the KCM Food Pantry weekly and the food pantry needs to be regularly replenished with good quality food to serve to those in need. Too often each month the Food Pantry runs very low, while the number of families in need of this service continues to grow. Our goal is to keep the Food Pantry well stocked through an initiative that will keep the need for food “top of mind” during one month per quarter using a creative and fun grocery shopping challenge that families will enjoy participating in once per quarter. Details coming soon.

How have you mentored other women?

I have an open door policy and receive calls and emails from Realtors from all over Houston and elsewhere asking about real estate business planning, advertising, and marketing, involvement in professional organizations and in the community, and other entrepreneurial endeavors; and I freely share my resources and knowledge with others.
What good is having knowledge or skills if you don’t share them with others?
