Veronica De La Torre promoted to VP of Special Events!

Veronica De La Torre was born and raised on the South side of San Antonio, Texas.  As the youngest of three siblings, she learned to look up to her older sister and brother throughout her life. Growing up, Veronica learned from her parents who are both natives from Monterrey, Mexico that in order to succeed in life, you have to work hard and get a good education. Determined to make her family proud, Veronica worked hard in school and still followed in the footsteps of her older siblings by becoming involved in various sports all the way up until she graduated from high school. Veronica graduated  in the top ten percent of her class from McCollum High School and decided to continue furthering her education in the Fall of 2010 by attending a great school nearby; Palo Alto College.

Veronica earned her Associate Degree from Palo Alto College in 2012 in Liberal Arts and continued getting her education across the highway from Texas A&M University – San Antonio.  In the Fall of 2014, she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and a minor in Psychology. 

Shortly after graduating from college, Veronica took on an internship with the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the oldest and only five-star accredited Chamber in the United States. As an intern under the leadership of the Vice President of Communications, Veronica quickly learned how to apply what she had learned in school to the real world.

Four months later, Veronica was hired on as the Office Manager and since then, has been promoted to the Assistant Vice President of Communications and Special Events and now in her current role to Vice President of Special Events. 

In her most recent role as Vice President of Special Events, she enjoys working with a dynamic team to deliver great value, overall experiences and innovative events for the Hispanic Chamber’s more than 1,300 members. Veronica looks forward to continuing advancing her skill set at the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. 

Some of Veronica’s hobbies include: traveling, attending concerts by her favorite bands, and reading about the latest trends in today’s fashion industry.  In the future, Veronica hopes to one day be working at a fashion entity out of Los Angeles, California in the field of Special Events or Communications and applying all the great skills that she learned here in Texas.
