Veronica D. Brooks-Uy

Vice President, Policy & Institutional Change

Veronica works with national, state, and local partners to improve laws and regulations related to quality authorizing. Additionally, she oversees NACSA’s Diversifying the Profession initiative–a strategy focused on both building a diverse pipeline for the field and helping institutions create safe, inclusive work environments to support future growth.

Veronica approaches her work with a lens of love and liberation. She wants to see kids and families like hers thrive, and she believes that starts with quality education. She started her career as a middle school science teacher. She then worked at the Louisiana Department of Education in the authorizing office, served as the Policy Director for the Louisiana Association of Public Charter Schools, and served as a consultant in a variety of capacities.

Veronica holds a master’s degree in public policy from George Washington University and a B.A. in psychology from the University of Virginia. She lives with her husband and two kids in Raleigh, NC. One day, she will catch up on sleep and regain some hobbies.
