Novato Live Well Network - About
About Us | "About Us" | About Us | Veronica Valero
Novato Live Well Network - About Veronica Valero, ED & Garden Chair - Veronica has been a resident of Novato since 1996. Health and wellness issues have always been important to Veronica. But, after her brother's death at age 44 of a rare sarcoma cancer (Ewing's Sarcoma/PNET) that is usually found in children, Veronica became a passionate volunteer health advocate as a way to "do something about it" in hopes that her son and all children and their families would never have to experience cancer or other such life threatening illnesses. Since 2003 she has advocated for healthier food choices for children and their families in the schools and community at large. She founded the Novato Healthy Food Coalition that had successful letter writing campaigns to bring Whole Foods and Trader Joes to Novato. Veronica is a founding member and Executive Director of the Novato Live Well Network. She is a 2006 graduate of Novato Chamber of Commerce's "Leadership Novato" Program and recipient of the "Leadership Novato" Ed Stark Award. She has taken courses at College of Marin on gardening and ecology, including the first class offering of the course, Principles and Practices or Organic Farming and Gardening. Veronica initiated the Novato Community Garden Project with Karen Losee. Veronica has an M.A. in Biblical Studies at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley. THANK YOU TO OUR FOUNDING BOARD MEMBERS: Miguel Villarreal, Barb Curtice, Norma Eckert, Heidi Kertel, Annie Spiegelman, Vicky Meblin, Veronica Valero. Our organization grew out of two events: (1) The Lunch Buddies program developed by Veronica Valero, a volunteer parent, and Miguel Villarreal, Director of Food and Nutrition Services (FANS) for the NUSD, and (2) the 2006 Novato Eat Well Festival put on through the collaboration of the Lunch Buddies parents, community volunteers, FANS Staff, and the Marin Food Systems Project of the Environmental Education Council of Marin.

Sponsorship Other Questions: Veronica Valero: (415) 897-2302 READ ANOVERVIEW OF THE PLAN that was submitted to the City of Novato. Please note, in the second paragraph it inadvertently stated that Novato Live Well Network was instrumental in bringing Whole Foods and Trader Joe's in town. The confusion resulted in the many hats Veronica Valero wears, one being that she was the founder of the Novato Healthy Food Coalition that did bring these stores to Novato. Our apologies for the confusion
