Veronica Johannsen, Dir. of Communications & Special Events

Veronica Johannsen is an education advocate, leader, and communications professional. Veronica previously served the San Antonio community as the communications director for the Office of Councilman Manny Pelaez and the communication specialist at the Alamo Area Council of Governments before joining the Brenham ISD team. 

Her passion for storytelling started nearly 10 years ago when she began her career in journalism. During her time as a bilingual broadcast journalist, she covered some of the biggest stories out of the Rio Grande Valley and San Antonio, TX on a local and national level. Her experience in and out of the field transformed her and has shaped her to become a strong voice for education and a dedicated advocate for Brenham ISD. "I am thrilled to be a part of the Cub Nation family, and can't wait to start sharing the stories of the Brenham ISD students," said Veronica Johannsen. 

Growing up a first-generation high school and college graduate, Veronica has made it her business to work within education. "This role is very personal to me as I know firsthand the power that education has in changing someone's life. I believe that all children no matter what zip code or demographic they belong to -- all children deserve the opportunity to have the tools to learn, thrive, and grow." 

During her free time, Veronica enjoys spending time with her family, friends, and her dog Horchata. She loves to learn new skills, travel, and check out new restaurants.
