Vera has been involved in the insurance business for more than 40 years and in 1972, she started her own insurance agency. There she met friends who looked to her for answers for how to best protect themselves – answers that, as time went on, helped her gain more and more expertise. Vera sold her insurance business to Bill Bowermaster in 1983, someone with whom she found a shared vision of how best to provide this vital service. She has been very happy with that decision – and so are her friends. Vera is a native Californian and enjoys cooking and horses.
