:flashlight: MVP Spotlight: Veronica Cooley-Perry

Each week, we feature a member of our team or a brilliant partner we’re collaborating with. This week, get to know Veronica!

Veronica is a Senior Community Manager at MongoDB.

Fun fact: “I’ve participated in the Krispy Kreme Challenge - where you run 2.5 miles, (attempt) to eat 12 Krispy Kreme donuts, and (attempt) to run 2.5 miles back to the starting line.”

Pet peeve: “When people are rude to customer service representatives”

Be sure to say hi to Veronica on Twitter.
