Vera Chapman comes to MPW from a diverse background, most recently in the field of higher education. She’s both a dreamer and a doer, and brings a fresh perspective on account management to the team. Skilled at digging deep with clients in one-on-one settings, Vera helps them to uncover their needs and goals from the same side of the table. She works to create an experience that not only gets the job done, but allows the client to feel confident and at ease.

Vera was born and raised in South Africa, but now calls Hamilton, N.Y. home. She lives there with her husband David, a rugby coach at Colgate University, and her two young children. In her spare time, Vera enjoys bringing new life to old treasures by repurposing items her family finds while thrifting and antiquing in the Northeast. During the warmer months, they can be found selling their reclaimed treasures at the Hamilton Farmer’s Market.

“Stay afraid, but do it anyway. What’s important is the action. You don’t have to wait to be confident. Just do it, and eventually the confidence will follow.” – Carrie Fisher
