Veronica Brandon Miller’s nickname is “the Queen of Collaborations.” With more than 25 years of creative vision and a level of unparalleled expertise in community engagement, branding and marketing, Veronica has leveraged resources and raise necessary funds for numerous charitable organizations. As the vice president for Goodwill Manasota’s Foundation, Veronica has created and implemented multiple strategic development plans and obtained donations and financial contributions to advance the organization’s mission. Her myriad accomplishments are testament to her determination, hard work and innovation. One of the most notable collaborations Veronica is credited for is the creation of the award-winning Goodwill Ambassador program, which now has more than 1,500 volunteers. This program has brought together a cadre of powerful leaders, all with the same desire to provide good-will in the community. Some of the outstanding Goodwill Ambassadors include additional women of influence, CJ Bannister, Jo Rita Steve, Faith Holliday and Stella McDaniel. “Every leader will tell you to surround yourself with good people. I surrounded myself with a group of people who embody the true spirit of the word ‘ambassador’,” says Veronica.
“Helping others has been a lifelong quest; quite simply, it defines me as a person."
