Veronika loves to make broken websites better and help new businesses hit the ground running with a great online presence. She will sweetly let you know if your proposed branding inspires her or makes her eyes roll. If you find her asking for your banana peels, it’s just because she’s trying to keep her red wiggler worms healthy and fed so they will keep making rich compost for all the lovely plants you see at CSI Annex.
