Vesta: A New Vision for Divorce helps those in search of information and resources find the professionals best suited to meet their needs. Each Hub features collaborative teams of expert divorce professionals needed to navigate the divorce process, including emotional, financial, legal, parenting, mortgage, and real estate. There is no obligation to engage their services and participants can remain anonymous.

Robert Vona, CEO, explains, “Our Hub Professionals collaborate and work as a team to help people through the process which helps to reduce anxiety, save time and money, and improve outcomes for families as they navigate the stormy waters of separation and divorce.”

Vesta’s unique Concierge Service is also free of charge and available to all. This service provides “personalized guidance and support before, during, and after divorce,” to guide people to the
Vesta events and webinars that are best suited for their specific situation, and schedule initial consultations with the professionals.

The company was founded in 2013 by CEO Robert Vona, CFO Samantha Steer Vona, and Head of Concierge Services, Deanna Coyle. They launched the company as a result of their own
experience with divorce and were determined that there had to be a more informative, healthier and cost-effective way to go through this life-altering process. Vesta’s first Hub launched in
Boston, Massachusetts, and the company has grown to include Hubs in Massachusetts, Rhode

Island, Southern California, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Washington and now South Carolina. Expansion plans include several more states to be launched this year.
