A change agent early in her career, she was the youngest woman to run the Midwest division of a destination management company – securing their first million-dollar contract with Ford Motor Company.

Industry-Recognized Expert

She's also a LinkedIn Instructor, delivering her marketing expertise digitally on the massive global platform.


Connects with Audiences at Every Level

Often the youngest, first, or only at her level of seniority throughout her career, Velera knows how feelings of inadequacy can cripple even the best talent.


She learned to “do it scared,” developing principles for operating day-to-day that helped her achieve incredible results. It’s with this insight and empathy that she founded her company Positive Identity, and is able to connect with audiences at all levels of organizations- from the intern to senior executive.
