After her playing career, Vera Jo went on to coach college basketball, working two years at Western Colorado, followed by five years as an assistant at New Mexico State University.

After leaving college coaching, VJ pursued a career in public speaking, where it did not take her long to shine. Now, Vera Jo is considered one of the top keynote speakers in the country, with an unparalleled ability to teach, to motivate, and to inspire.

What sets Vera Jo Bustos apart is her ability to transcend the confines of the playbook. 

Her insights go beyond tactical maneuvers; they delve into the realms of leadership, mental resilience, and coaching confidence. Expect a speaker who not only imparts basketball wisdom but leaves a lasting impact on personal and professional growth.
