Veronica is an expert with over a decade of experience in all areas of financial planning including estate, tax, retirement, education, insurance, and investments. Not only is Veronica well-versed in the world of personal finance, but she is also a graduate of multiple Tony Robbins programs. Much of financial planning isn't covered in school, so Veronica has made it her mission is to equip people with the necessary tools to navigate through difficult economic times and discover money management secrets. It isn’t enough to understand your finances – you need to take control of them to achieve financial independence.
Veronica discussed finance to my Sociology students. Her ability to engage with the students was really amazing. While finance is not the most interesting topic, all the students took notes and asked personal and thought-provoking questions. Veronica's ability to make the topic interesting and related is impressive. I look forward to having her back next year!

My name is Veronica Karas. I’m a Certified Financial Planner™ Professional, and have been working in the finance industry since 2008. I started by working for a life insurance company, then spent about six months working for a large investment research firm. I was then lucky enough to get hired to work as a full-time marketing associate for a small Registered Investment Advisor (RIA).
Clients started to come to me with their questions since I was working in a finance firm, and I became interested in pursuing the Certified Financial Planner™ designation (yes, they make us write it in all CAPS like that). I earned that designation in 2012 and have since been working directly with individuals from all walks of life, helping them to get their financial house in order, minimize their tax burden, maximize their savings and investment earnings, organize their estate planning, figure out what kind of insurance and how much they need, and everything else that touches their financial lives. I’ve paid bills for clients, purchased boats and cars for clients, helped them sell their homes, helped them buy the home of their dreams, helped them send their kids to college, planned their dream trips, and planned their retirement. Amid this time, I spent about 8 months working for a large brokerage firm – a disaster of an experience that didn’t align with my personal moral compass and went running right back to the RIA world where I genuinely feel blessed to be every single day.
I have worked with ultra-high-net worth individuals, individuals with loads of debt, individuals who never had money and are suddenly inheriting a boat load, and basically everyone in between. I have a deep-seeded passion for helping people making sound financial decisions and become financially independent. I love my work every single day and I am so grateful for every single client and colleague I’ve had the pleasure of working with.
On a more personal note: I’m a dog lover and rescuer, currently the proud mom to 3 fur babies. I live with my amazing husband and our crazy fur-family in Port Washington, NY. I’m also a Registered Yoga Teacher, Buti Yoga, Hot Buti Yoga, and Vinyasa Yoga instructor and an IIN certified health coach.
Additional Booking Notes
My natural voice is pretty loud so no worries about sound.
I like to have music inserted into my presentations so anywhere I can play music is great!
