About Vanessa


I'm constantly evolving and growing.  I wear many hats, and I'm a Jill of all trades. I am a wife, mother and stepmother, a daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, friend, confidante, lover, geek, nerd, liberal, democrat, independent, atheist, secular humanist, and bleeding heart.  Professionally, I am a full-time marketing and communications manager and a graphic designer.  There are so many titles to define me but each one covers just a facet of my existence.

I'm happiest when I'm creating and learning something new.  I am an unrepentant news junky. I love reading, writing, drawing, and painting.  I've been accused of being a Vulcan in my quest for logic, but I'm also passionate about the things I believe in.  My views and opinions are strong, but I'm willing to debate and change my view should I receive new input.  I don't try to convert anyone or ridicule their belief systems. Life's too short to make other people miserable.

My biggest wish is for people to embrace our differences, but also question the status quo.  Life is an adventure and I want to live it well.
