Vera was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana.  She earned a BS in Management and Marketing with a minor in Legal Studies in Business and Photography from Tulane University. After a French Immersion trip to Paris, she knew she was destined to eventually live here. So in 2012, Vera relocated to Versailles to teach English and to immerse herself in French life.  She moved to Frankfurt, Germany to expand her language skills in 2014. Ultimately France won her heart, and so she permanently moved back to Paris, to work as a marketing translator. Vera joined the Paris Muse Team as Office Manager in January 2018 before transitioning to General Manager in July 2020. In her free time, you can find Vera traveling to new countries with her husband and son, taking photographs, and meeting new people.  You'll find many of her beautiful photographs on our Instagram feed.
