Vera is no stranger to pain having lost her son Dustin Coats in a terrible car wreck in 2003 at the age of fifteen. In addition to this Vera’s nephew Saul Raisin a professional biker was injured in a terrible biking accident and had to undergo brain surgery and a long recovery process. Due to a lack of CNA’s in the area and having had CNA’s care for her nephew during his rehabilitation, Vera was inspired to begin a CNA training program in the Calhoun, GA area. With the support of her husband Kyle Wolfe she started their first CNA program with 11 students in 2007. The program was a success and shortly after Vera started the Medical and Technical Institute of North Georgia which now offers over ten post secondary educational technical programs. Today Vera is the proud owner of both businesses and feels she is making a contribution not only to the community but also to the educational goals of thousands of individuals in the North Georgia area.
