Veronica StudnickaVeronica Studnicka

Operations Director

Veronica came on staff as Emmaus’s Operations Director in April of 2015. She is responsible for human resources, finance, IT, and whatever else is required to keep the operations running smoothly. She has worked in the nonprofit sector for over ten years.

Veronica was first introduced to Emmaus Ministries through grant research, and she found the mission and purpose of the agency to be unique and courageous. The immense degree of compassion and the dedication of the staff impressed her. The staff is committed to serving, advocating, and joining in fellowship with the men who seek Emmaus Ministries’ services. She looks forward to building relationships with those served by the agency as well as with the volunteers and supporters.

Veronica is inspired by Matthew 4:4: “…Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Working at Emmaus Ministries is an opportunity to share the love of Christ with those who have faced incredible hardships and seek a way toward stability and peace. She is delighted to be part of a team that goes beyond merely providing social services.

Veronica enjoys spending quality time with her husband and mother. They tend to go hiking, biking, camping, bird watching, kayaking, skydiving, and swimming with beluga whales.
