Penn valley Area Chamber of Commerce
Veronica Jones is a fifth-generation Nevada Countyian and was raised in the French Corral area. Veronica currently lives between Smartsville and Penn Valley with her husband Bret and has two grown daughters who live outside the area. She recently retired from the US Forest Service, Tahoe National Forest after 35 years. In January (same month she retired) Veronica saw an ad in the Penn Valley Chamber newspaper advertising for office assistance. She felt it was karma that the ad appeared the same month she retired and felt it was a great way to get involved and give back to her community, as well as meet her neighbors. Veronica loves the outdoors and traveling with her family. She also enjoys gardening, quilting and knitting.
