TLC’s new advice show She’s In Charge is hosted by Veronica-Pooh Nash-Poleate. But who is Veronica, affectionately known as ‘Pooh’?

You might be familiar with Veronica from her viral video, which she filmed while she was driving to church one morning, called “Don’t Go in the Shark’s House“.

At the time of writing the clip, which propelled her to stardom, has been viewed more than 15 million times on Facebook and another 430,000 times on YouTube.

After she made the video, which advised people not to go swimming in the sea due to sharks, dozens of people started getting in touch with her for advice.

Veronica has since made other videos with intriguing titles, such as “Half-Moon Toilet Seats are the Devil” and “They don’ Killed the WRONG BEAR!!!”

She has become a sensation almost overnight, and is turning into something of a feminist icon.

Schooled in Tennessee at Tyner High School, Veronica went on to graduate from Middle Tennessee State University with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, subsequently becoming a Master of Education.

Big-hearted Veronica is now the school counsellor at Washington Alternative School in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and is fiercely proud of her students, or “babies” as she calls them.

After amassing a enormous number of fans through her online videos, TLC has given Veronica the chance to hit the road and meet some of her fans in person.

She has over 175,000 followers on Facebook, so we don’t imagine she’ll  find it hard to find a few of them!

Religion is very important to Veronica and she represents the good things in this world.

She’s deeply caring but she doesn’t pull any punches. She’s a straight-talking lady!

Above all else, Veronica just likes helping people. Perhaps we would all do well to be a bit more like her in our everyday lives!
