Co-Founder and Head of Financial Professionals Robert Vona speaks to ABC 10 News San Diego about Vesta’s New Vision for Divorce.
Vesta is the brainchild of financial advisors Bob, Deanna and Samantha resulting from many years of working to helping families find better divorce resources; our co-founders have built a superlative team of over 100 professionals who specialize in the divorce field and are passionate about helping people. We are here to help you find your way.™
Deanna Coyle is Co-Founder, Concierge Manager and Leader of Ancillary Professionals. As a mother who has gone through a long and financially and emotionally draining divorce, Deanna understands how isolating and frustrating the divorce process can be. Her challenging divorce led her to create divorce programs that educate, empower, and guide people in navigating the crucial decisions and considerations during and after divorce. In 2015, Deanna left her successful financial planning business to work exclusively on creating Vesta.
Deanna helps Vesta’s clients connect with the experienced and caring professionals in the areas of divorce and self-care that best suit their needs. She is dedicated to transforming the divorce process by helping people avoid courtroom battles and the resulting anger, resentment, and hurt that affect all involved. She is focused on the emotional, financial, and physical health and well-being of both parents and children.
Deanna’s more than 20 years of financial experience include six years as a financial advisor and seven years as a securities analyst on Wall Street. She graduated cum laude with a B.A. degree in Economics from Mount Holyoke College and received her M.B.A. from the Amos Tuck School of Dartmouth College. Deanna lives in Natick, MA and successfully co-parents her two boys with her ex-husband.
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
Robert Vona is Co-Founder and CEO. Having been through a divorce himself, Bob understands the unique challenges divorce can present in someone’s life. During his own divorce, he worked through the legal process as best he could but knew there had to be a better way.
Bob has been the visionary for Vesta from the beginning, seeing many years ago just how big an impact Vesta could make on people’s lives across the country. He knows that if people can answer three questions “What does it look like today?”, “What will it look like day one after the divorce?” and “What will it look like in fifteen years or at retirement?” that people could have much greater confidence in signing that divorce agreement. Too often he has seen people post-divorce trying to answer these questions and wishing they had found Vesta sooner.
Bringing together the Legal, Emotional and Financial aspects of divorce is such a key to feeling “good” about your divorce. Bob is a 30 year veteran of the financial services industry after receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in Management from Bentley University. This includes years at New York Life Insurance Company, AIG, Bank of America, CNA-Viaticus, and Citi/Smith Barney. Bob spends time in both Newton, MA, and Carlsbad CA with his wife.
The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.
Samantha Steer is a Co-Founder and CFO. As a child of divorce at the age of three, Samantha watched not only her parents but many many other family members get divorced over her lifetime. Samantha is passionate about helping families make informed decisions instead of emotionally driven decisions. She enjoys speaking with parents about her experience, and how she turned part of her identity into a focus to help others during what can be a difficult life transition.
With a background in finance and trained as a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA), she is especially passionate about making sure people understand their financial options in divorce and beyond. Samantha expanded her financial advising business to include working with divorcees early on in her financial career and has spent 7 years focusing on divorce in her practice. Samantha understands the value of a team approach to help clients make decisions that positively impact themselves and their families.
She works closely with the Vesta Hubs, helping them to develop and succeed in providing education, connection, and empowerment during any phase of divorce. Samantha graduated with a B.A. in Business Administration with a focus in Entrepreneurship and Finance from Babson College. Samantha spends time in both Newton, MA, and Carlsbad CA with her husband.
I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the water to create many ripples.
