Her life’s mission is to guide others towards becoming the most extraordinary version of themselves – something she likes to call, “chasing your fire.” In the capacities of Career and Mental Health Counselor, Student Affairs Administrator, Educational Consultant, and Adjunct Professor, Dr. Vera’s clients have ranged in age from 3 to 61 years old, spanning across the globe. Her research on college student development has been recognized at a national level and she continues her exploration of the topic. Most recently she has authored the new media based Real World Ready! career development series. In her spare time Vera likes to make Pinterest inspired crafts, cuddle with her babies (Lucy and Littlebit), and dream of foreign adventures with her husband, David. Whether she is working, playing or traveling, one thing is for sure:
She is always chasing her fire.
