Veronica Jones (she, her, hers) joined UREC in 2021. As the Associate Director for Health and Wellness Promotion, Veronica provides oversight for the areas of Sexual and Relationship Health and Substance Misuse Prevention. Prior to joining UREC, Veronica worked in the JMU Health Center for 10 years in various roles such as Health Educator, Assistant Director for Marketing and Communications, and Associate Director for Health Education, Advocacy and Prevention.

Veronica earned her undergraduate degree in Exercise Science from East Carolina University and her master’s in Health Sciences from James Madison University. During her time in graduate school she was the Graduate Assistant for Fitness and Nutrition at UREC. Prior to working at JMU professionally she worked in parks and recreation, a retirement community wellness center, and hospital corporate wellness.

Veronica enjoys spending time with her partner, Chris, and their very lovable Australian Shepherd, Samson. Reading non-fiction, being active, and seeing live music are some of the way she likes to spend her time outside of work.

Her favorite part of working at UREC is the people – working with colleagues and interacting with students.
