Dr. Véronique Bellamy, D.Phil is many things to many people. Computer scientist, political candidate, police officer and activist, there is more to Véronique than people calling her “Veronica”. As a polymath, Véronique also practices writing, drawing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, tai chi and kickboxing. She is a strong advocate for multiculturalism and multilingualism in America.

My Biography: The Short Story
Véronique earned her bachelor’s and masters degrees at L’École polytechnique and her doctoral degree at the University of Oxford. While living in France, she was a member of the Gendarmerie nationale where she earned two medals for her exemplary service. After graduating from the University of Oxford, she worked for BNP Paribas in the City of London. She worked with the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists and provided charity services to the community.
When she returned to the United States, Véronique moved to Longmont, Colorado weeks prior to the 2013 floods. She ran for the RTD Board of Directors in 2016 and helped to create the Longmont Green Party. She is also a delegate to the Green Party of Colorado and a member of their Web committee. At her church, Boulder Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, she serves both as a facilitator of the Our Whole Lives programme and as a member of the A/V team.
My site is powered by WordPress and uses a variant of the Get Noticed theme by Michael Hyatt and Andrew Buckman. As a developer running a multilingual blog, I’ve made some modifications to the theme’s core that I am talking about in my series, My Experience With the GetNoticed Theme.
I used to recommend A Small Orange for web hosting but in recent years, their quality of service has gone downhill. I am moving all my sites to three web hosts: Flywheel for my WordPress-powered sites, Github Pages for my projects and Heroku for everything else. This site will be the last to move, given that it is my domain for my e-mail.
