National Association of Attorneys General
Since joining the NAAG staff as a paralegal almost a year ago, Veronica Ricca has become an integral part of the Constitutional & Appellate Issues Division and the NAGTRI team. Her numerous duties for NAGTRI include managing hotel logistics, securing speakers for the events, and preparing materials for the trainings. She also supports the Constitutional & Appellate Issues Division assisting with its moot courts throughout the Supreme Court terms, a key part of the Association.
“Compared to other firms I was looking into, I really liked the idea of working at NAAG because I would be doing several different things,” she said. “Now, I support five supervisors in different areas of NAAG, I get to travel, and the atmosphere is laid back but professional at the same time.”
After graduating from Louisiana State University with a bachelor’s in art history in 2006, she moved to D.C. for an internship at the Art Museum of the Americas at the Organization of American States (OAS). Veronica ended her tenure at the OAS as an assistant for the Department of Cultural Services. There she coordinated and managed events and correspondence for the director of Cultural Services, and assisted in their first annual art auction and fundraiser for the museum. Leaving the art industry behind for now, Veronica plans to attend law school next fall.
Veronica said she especially enjoys the atmosphere and her co-workers at NAAG. “I love the NAGTRI trainings and meeting people from Attorneys General offices all around the country.”
A native of the Greater New Orleans area, Veronica now resides in the Dupont Circle neighborhood where she enjoys running, painting, playing intramural co-ed soccer, and volunteering around the District. She was most recently spotted in The Washington Post’s July 26th “Street Style” section, where she was photographed for her stylish work apparel.
