How did Gutierrez start her Career?

Gutierrez is a cosmetologist and researches beauty treatments. But it’s not because of her career that she gained fame. All credit goes to her son, Devin Booker, picked by Phoenix Suns in the 2015 NBA draft. He is the first youngest 18 years old player to debut in NBA. The general manager of Suns has praised Devin for how amazed he was with his improvements in-game.

“Devin has done unbelievably well not just on the court but representing the franchise in the community as well. he was a bright spot for us in a difficult year.” says Ryan McDonough.

On the other hand, Devin’s father and Veronica Gutierrez’s boyfriend, Melvin Booker, was also a professional basketball player. As a result, he was entitled as Big Eight Player of the Year in 1994. Unfortunately, he was not selected in the 1994 NBA Draft, but he has played for the most prominent basketball team like Golden State Warriors, Denver Nuggets, and Houston Rockets. He later retired from the basketball career and worked in Moss Point High School as an assistant coach.

Soon after, the couple parted ways, and her boyfriend, Melvin, settled down in Moss Point, Mississippi. On the other hand, Veronica moved on with another boyfriend.

Veronica gave birth to a daughter, Mya Powell, from her new relationship. Her daughter, Miya, is suffering from a chromosomal genetic disorder called microdeletion syndrome. Veronica is currently living a single life; it seems she has never made her appearance in public with her partner. While her son, Devin, used to visit his father in his hometown from time to time.
