Verna has spent her career as a non-profit executive and consultant, focused on redesigning organizations and their programs to better meet the needs of their customers. She brings strong management, leadership and marketing skills to Visit Sacramento, having served both as the President & CEO of the West Sacramento Chamber of Commerce and as the Executive Director of the Florin Road Partnership.

She is also an American Leadership Forum Fellow and graduate of Leadership Sacramento, as well as a founding member of Metro EDGE, the Sacramento Metro Chamber’s young professional’s group.

Verna and her husband, Brent Hull, are huge Seattle Seahawks fans and eloped in Seattle last year to watch a football game and tie the knot on the anniversary of their first date, which (not surprising) was watching a Seattle Seahawks game together.
