Veronica Atkins was born in Russia and narrowly escaped the Nazi onslaught during World War II by fleeing to live with her great-aunt in Vienna. In the years since, she has lived in seven countries and become fluent in as many languages. Her far-flung travels have given her an extensive knowledge of international cuisine. Music has also played an important role in her life. She began singing in Europe at a young age and performed professionally as an opera singer from 1963 to 1976. Today she is actively involved in Dr. Atkins' work at the Center for Complementary Medicine. She serves on the board of directors of the Foundation for the Advancement of Innovative Medicine Education Group. Her current stage is the kitchen, where she actively creates and develops delicious low-carbohydrate recipes.
