Biography

In her never ending quest of trying to figure out what she wanted to do when she grew up, Veronica, an eye doctor, spent the last 5 years traveling to Peru, India and Brasil conducting free eye clinics and various volunteer missions while living in ashrams. It was on these trips that she was exposed to, and became knowledgeable in, all the wisdom that living in an ashram under a guru provides. During this time, she completed her yoga teacher training and advanced teacher training programs, as well as, advanced scriptural, philosophical, psychological, and meditation curriculums. Finally, she had truly found her calling and needed to raise funds for her eye clinics. While traveling between NYC and abroad, Veronica began designing her own line of ashram clothing and accessories, drawing tremendous inspiration from each setting. She created a line that reflected her own urban style while mmaintainingthe respected spiritual environment in which they were to be worn, hence ashramchic was born
