Veronica Israel || Finance Director
My name is Veronica. I currently serve as the Finance Director of the Underground Network based in Tampa, FL. I'm Haitian American, born and raised in West Palm Beach, Florida. I'm a fan of music and enjoy attending concerts. I'm a gatherer and love hosting events around the table.

"Before the services of the finance department, our network was in some disarray: we had applied twice for nonprofit status and failed, couldn't hire employees, and our records were a box of receipts in the corner. Today, we are a federally recognized nonprofit, I'm full time and we just hired a few interns this year, and our financial records are beautifully well kept on Quickbooks Online, all because of the ongoing guidance and support of the finance department."

"The finance department keeps courageous leaders on mission and focused on the people they are called to love. Without this department, numerous ministries would endure the unneeded stress of developing skills outside their wheelhouse resulting in an erosion of their core mission."
Jeremy Stephens | Director of translocal planting, Underground Network
"The finance team/department at The Underground has so many different skills available. There is a willingness to encourage and partner with you at any stage of business or paperwork you are going through. From giving advice from the knowledge and experience they already have, to phone calls, to teaching, and research to help in anyway possible. The partnership and experience with the Underground is something that is worth the investment of looking into."
