Veronica Marchese serves as the first point of contact for the William Davidson Foundation in her role as front desk associate. She welcomes and directs all guests visiting and calling the Foundation and assists the Office Manager in day-to-day operations, facilities management, office services and related functions.
Veronica previously worked as a medical assistant for Northwest Dermatology Group. There she assisted doctors and physician’s assistants during surgical procedures and provided customer service to patients.
She earned her bachelor’s degree in kinesiology at Michigan State University. As an upperclassman, she taught the cadaver lab, the course that familiarizes students with the biomechanics of the human body. She also completed an independent study that involved photographing and tagging parts of the human brain to create a study tool for medical students.
All the while, Veronica was a volunteer for several nonprofit organizations. As an undergraduate, she organized a seven-day student trip to Honduras to volunteer alongside local doctors as they treated patients. The experience proved to be life changing for Veronica and, upon returning, she decided to pursue a career in the nonprofit sector.
A Michigan native and a longtime enthusiast for all-things-Detroit, Veronica involves herself in sports year-round, including swimming, biking and snowboarding. She is a fan of the city’s professional sports teams and an avid reader.
