Veronica Clanton-Higgins, MSW

Veronica Clanton- Higgins, MSW, is an author, educator, life coach, motivational speaker, and CEO of VCH Prosperity Consulting. A native of Compton, CA, Veronica is known for her community advocacy, support & healing of women, and youth mentorship. Veronica started VCH Prosperity Consulting in 2016 to address the social, emotional, and spiritual needs of women in her community. This was accomplished through the use of workshops that focused on connecting women through sisterhood. Her unique style of Life Coaching is a combination of empowerment, motivation, and inspiration. She has made it her life’s purpose to improve the lives of others by helping them discover their self worth through the use of mindfulness and self affirming techniques.

Veronica promotes change through education. She created S.O.S. (Squad of Survivors), a nine week program that promotes healing through the sisterhood collective. Veronica uses this method because “healing is more effective when you have a strong support system.” For the young women, the Girls Leadership Academy was created. It is a seven month curriculum for middle school youth that encourages young women to focus on their strengths in order to be effective leaders in school and in their neighborhood. Veronica’s work also includes a research study in collaboration with California State University, Long Beach, and the March of Dimes which focused on reducing stress in African American women through the use of psycho education. During her free time, Veronica enjoys writing. Her works includes a thought processing journal, “Ten Steps to Happy”, a planner for women in business, “Goal Digger: Planner for the Business Diva”, and a stress reduction coloring book, “Girl, Just Color”.

Veronica currently believes that our words have power and that we should be mindful of what we speak into the universe. She works with women to find their happiness and purpose in life. Through workshops, one-on-ones, and psycho-education, her continuous goal is to make women feel empowered enough to take life by the horns and live it on their terms!
