Veronica Muñoz grew up in a construction family. She is the 2nd eldest of nine. As early as 6 years of age Veronica would accompany her father, Crescenciano Muñoz, founder of Mezquite Carpets to his jobsites and help lay carpet. A curious soul at heart and fast learner, she would walk around the sites asking and participating hands on to anyone that would lend her a few minutes of their time with questions about their trades.
At 14 years old Veronica was promoted to COO of Mezquite Carpets. She helped grow the company into one of the nation’s largest floor recycling companies, recycling 10million+ pounds of material per year and managing 80+ accounts nationwide.
The first of her family to attend a University, she graduated with a Bachelors in Journalism from Southern Methodist University in 2007.
By the time she graduated SMU, Veronica was producing newscasts and special segments for Univision, the #1 Spanish language TV network in the US at the time. This included Mega Marches, 2010 FIFA World Cup, Superbowl XLV, 2011 MLB World Series, 2011 NBA Finals (The Dallas Mavericks defeated the Miami Heat to win their first championship in franchise history), Hurricane Katrina and the 2009 Fort Hood Shooting (The worst mass shooting at a U.S. military installation).
However, Veronica had a construction itch that would not go away. She started Mezquite Installations in 2012. She used her close connections and determination in obtaining contracts with top GCs and developers. Starting out with just floor finishes and expanding to all interior scopes of work within a very short period of time. Her humble beginnings allow her to understand firsthand what it is to be at the forefront of her trade.
Her years of playing soccer and running on the field has helped prepare her for chasing after her three little ones Dario(1 year old), Hermilia(5 month old) and Heron(her husband). She is a strong believer in education with strong scholarship funding ties.
Veronica currently sits on the board of the Regional Hispanic Contractors Association (RHCA) and the Southeast Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
