Veronica was born in the Czech Republic where she undertook a Bachelor Degree in Psychology at Olomouc University. Veronica intended to further her studies in New York by enrolling at Parsons School of Fine Art. During her stay in New York Veronica began a successful career as a Model, to date she has been captured by some of the most prestigious photographers in the world, was featured twice on the Cover of Sports Illustrated and has participated in campaigns including Chanel, Victoria Secret and Hublot Genève. Veronica’s career as a model offered her an opportunity to further her interests in Philanthropy – for the past 9 years she has been providing patronage to the SZPD Orphanage of 50 children in Olomouc, and Cultural Relations - she is currently a Global Ambassador and Board Member of the African Wildlife Foundation, where she aids in efforts to raise awareness and funding to support the AWF’s initiatives of protecting endangered species and conserving their habitats. A recent example of this would be the process led by Veronica in interfacing with President Kikwete where the integrity of the migratory paths of the Serengeti National Park was threatened by the planned construction of a asphalted High Way. Veronica is a keen advocate of sustainable development on the African continent and uses the high-level contacts that she has generated throughout her career in the public eye to assist private sector and governments to interact, whilst maintaining a strong position with regard to the importance of cultural sensitivities, social and environmental needs. Veronica resides between New York and Prague, but continues to spend at least a quarter of her time traveling in Africa both on AWF business and in developing existing and established relationships with leaders of African nations, primarily in Sub Saharan Africa, where she has historically aided private sector investment from international companies looking to access the continent. She is an active participant in the Clinton Global Initiative.
