Hi, hello. I’m Veronica!
I am a New York City-based marketer at PepsiCo by day, 90’s sit-com and true crime addict by night. I love to help people take control of their careers and excel at their jobs.
Many moons ago, I lived on the west coast of Canada in Vancouver, BC. I studied marketing at the University of British Columbia, with very few expectations of where that would lead me. Upon graduation, I landed my dream job at PepsiCo. I packed up my bags and moved 4000km+ to the east coast. I joined the PepsiCo Foods division, which allowed me to proudly declare “I sell chips!” at parties. Through hard work, supportive sponsors and a big dollop of luck, I moved through several progressive roles over my tenure, ranging from “traditional” Brand Management, to Innovation, Shopper Marketing, and Business Development. In 2019 (roughly 6 months before the world shut down!), I accepted a new adventure with PepsiCo and transferred to our Beverages HQ in New York. I now reside in Manhattan with my husband, Jon, and our rescue pupper, Tonky.
I’ve spent a decade+ co-running a mentorship program at UBC with a talented group of industry professionals, where we help aspiring marketing students land their dream jobs. As I progressed in my career, I became a people manager and campus recruitment lead for the marketing department. It’s been interesting to approach the topic of “career” from all angles.
I hope you’ll find value in the perspective I’ve gained over the years, shared through bite-sized nuggets on this blog. If you’d like to have a more personalized conversation about your career with me, drop me a line through my Contact page!
