Vanessa has worked in the human services field since 2007 and joined Headway in 2011. She works with the families of children who are having trouble attending school. ”I try to define the problem then ensure that children and their families are supported and have access to resources to help them through any obstacle in their lives,” she says. 

In her free time, Vanessa loves to dance; bake desserts; and be with her family, boyfriend and friends. She also works as an interpreter for home care nurses and as relief staff for Casa de Esperanza.
