Veronica Mejia Stuart, PhD
Board Member - Seattle. Veronica is a UX Research professional in tech since 2005, a research psychologist by training (PhD), mom of 2 kids and 2 dogs. Born and raised in Southern California to a mom from El Paso and a dad from Juarez, MX, Veronica spent her childhood crossing state lines and borders to visit family, thus becoming a product of a very large multi-generational, multilingual, multi-racial, multi-national Mexican-American/Chicano/Tejano/Mexican family. This is most tangibly reflected in her broad music tastes and deep pop culture knowledge. Living in the Seattle area for the past decade, Veronica is nonetheless a diehard Lakers and USC Trojans fan for life.
Gaby is a Product Marketing Manager at Salesforce, responsible for the Media & Entertainment industry. Born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil, she spent most of her life in the city. She graduated in Advertising & Marketing and worked for Ogilvy, an ad agency, for 6 year before she moved to the US in 2016 to pursue her MBA in the University of Michigan Ross School of Business (Go Blue!). She moved to Seattle recently (in the middle of the craziness of 2020!) and is loving the Pacific Northwest way of life.
Danielle is an Advanced Analytics Consultant for Liberty Mutual Insurance. She grew up in South Florida, studied International Relations and Economics at the University of Pennsylvania, and eventually moved out to Seattle ~5 years ago. Although her parents are Ecuadorian, she is also part Spanish and Chinese, so she loves bringing together diverse viewpoints. She and her husband recently bought a house and spend most of their time hanging out in their backyard with their beloved dog, Bella.
