Verva, a California native, was born and raised in Southern California before relocating to the Central Coast in 1984. If her name sounds familiar to you it’s probably because Verva is a long-time Valley resident since 1988.
She and her husband Bruce have five children and are proud grandparents to 11 grandchildren! When her youngest child was in grade school, Verva returned to school to attend night classes while working full-time. She graduated magna cum laude from the University of Laverne in 1994 and she placed within the top 100 in the nation and 5th in the state of California the year she passed the CPA exam. She then went on to earn her CVA, Certified Valuation Analyst, in 1999. Adding to her list of accomplishments, Verva has also served as an instructor for the Becker CPA review course.
Verva certainly keeps busy, but in her free time she enjoys wine tasting with Bruce and getting together with friends and family for home cooked meals and wine pairing. C&D Profile
