ERONICA MORENO was born and raised in southern California to parents of Mexican heritage who raised her and her siblings with a pious faith. Having spent every other summer in central Mexico visiting her grandparents, her earliest musical influences included traditional mariachi music.
After parochial school, she attended UCLA and earned an undergraduate degree in Ethnomusicology. During this time she began working with newborns and infants who had severe special needs. This inspired her to study special education at Cal State LA, earning her graduate degree and credential. She taught pre-school students with autism before deciding to become a homeschooling mom.
Veronica is a long-time cantor at her local parish. As a young adult, she was introduced to the rich musical traditions of the Catholic Church, and now strives to bring that ethos into her service to the Church.
Veronica is married to a high school teacher and homeschools her five young children. She is proud of her vocation as a mother and teacher, and works tirelessly to create a learning atmosphere at home. She enjoys reading Jane Austen novels, watching period dramas, and drinking iced coffee.
