Hi! My name is Carter Boardman. I am from Augusta, GA and was lucky enough to work for VeryVera during high school. I could honestly go on for pages about the many reasons I love Vera Stewart, lessons I learned from her, and my experience working at VeryVera, but the key takeaway would be that hard work most definitely pays off. This is something that I was grateful enough to learn at a young age from Vera. Working at VeryVera during high school was one of the best decisions of my life. I started working at VeryVera as a holiday “elf” but I loved it so much that I continued into the summer.
Work for Vera Stewart and I promise you’ll go places. Her attention to detail, persistence, leadership, and tough nature are just a few of the qualities that lead Vera to be the successful business woman she is today. At the time, I didn’t realize she was instilling these qualities in me, but as I graduated high school, college, and moved to New York City to work for a high fashion designer, Stuart Weitzman, I quickly noticed I owed Vera for where I had landed. It is extremely important to learn these traits at a young age as they will carry you from job to job no matter what you choose to do with your life. I started working in Public Relations, followed by events and VIP management and now I am working on a massive development that is opening in Charleston, SC. While each of these jobs are different they all require attention to detail, persistence, and leadership. Nothing comes easy but if you work at it you will be recognized and you will excel.
