Veronica PhillipsCelebrity Dancer
Veronica Phillips was born and raised in Prescott, AZ. After graduating from Prescott High School in 2002, she headed to college in Long Beach, California where she pursued a degree in Fashion Merchandising. She then moved to Palm Beach, FL followed by New York City, where she landed her dream job working for the high end boutique Calypso. Thanks to her career, Veronica spent most of her early 20s traveling around the country opening and working in new boutiques. She was home for the holidays one year when she reconnected with a high school acquaintance, Trevor Phillips. The two hit it off and before she knew it she had fallen in love and found herself back in Prescott helping Trevor open what is now Park Plaza Liquor and Deli. Fast forward, and Veronica is now happily married to Trevor and raising their children Max and Poppy. Veronica stays busy as a Mom to two little ones, and also runs the local not-for-profit group Mothers in Bloom that she co-founded in 2017. The group's mission is to bring together Moms in the community all while giving back to Prescott, and over the past year and a half Mothers in Bloom has raised thousands of dollars for local charities. In her spare time Veronica practices pilates, enjoys traveling and absolutely loves a good party! Entertaining is in her genes and nothing makes her happier than bringing people together over great food, wine, and conversation. Veronica has always enjoyed dancing, with her experience ranging from dance classes at age 5 to later cheerleading at Prescott High School. If breaking it down on the dance floor on a girls' night out on Whiskey Row counts, then add that too! She looks forward to learning some new moves with her partner Zach, and raising as much money as possible for The Boys and Girls Club, all while having a great time.
