She attended the Ecole Speciale d'Architecture in Paris and the School of Architecture at Columbia University where she met and married Edgar Salomonsky, also a student of architecture. Together they opened an architectural firm in 1920. When Edgar died in 1929, Verna continued to run the business on her own, specializing in Georgian, colonial and English style homes. She published a study of American furniture entitled MASTERPIECES OF FURNITURE DESIGN (1931). Shipway designed homes in New York State and California, and wrote, with her husband Warren Shipway, five books on contemporary Mexican residential architecture and interior design. In her later life she was a resident of Rancho Santa Fe, California. Her papers are at the Geisel Library, University of California, La Jolla.
