Hello, I am Vanesa. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California along side my parents and three brothers. I graduated from Cal State University of Fullerton with a bachelor’s degree in Communicative Disorders. My passion for helping others led me to volunteer at Providence Speech and Hearing Clinic in Fullerton and at The Children’s Hospital of Orange County. Whether it was volunteering, being an elementary school tutor or playing with nieces and nephews, my heart is always filled with joy being around children. What can I say, they bring out the inner child in me. My desire to help children learn and grow has brought me to a rewarding career working with children with communication and learning challenges. I enjoy spending my time with friends and family and love exploring the outdoors, taking fitness classes, cooking, dancing, crafting and taking road trips. I feel so excited and fortunate to be a part of Bright Beginnings, working with amazing staff and having the opportunity to meet wonderful children.
