About Coach Vera
I graduated college with a Bachelors of Business Administration in Marketing from Georgia State University (GSU).  While obtaining my degree I played 4 years of Division 1 soccer.  Being a Georgia native, shortly after college I bought a one way ticket to Texas for an internship on an Arabian Horse Farm.  Within, months I became assistant barn manager then to manager of a 33 horse barn.  After 2 years I decided to get into coaching.  I am a Head Soccer Coach for a North Texas Soccer Club.  This is where I discovered my passion for coaching but ultimately teaching.  I am currently teaching 6th and 7th grade S.S. at Finley and an assistant soccer coach at the high school.
