Hi, I am Vanesa. I was born and raised right here in Los Angeles, California. I graduated from California State University, Fullerton with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communicative Disorders and earned my license to practice as a Speech-Language Pathologist Assistant from the highly competitive program at California State University, Northridge. For years, I have worked with children of all ages (early intervention to teens) in a variety of roles (SLPA, tutor, Therapeutic Learning Coach) and no matter the setting, I always find joy in serving kids. My passion and desire to help children learn and grow has led me to an extremely rewarding career. Every day, I help kids resolve communication and cognitive-based learning and attention challenges. I feel so excited and fortunate to be a part of Bright Beginnings, working with amazing staff, and having the opportunity to meet wonderful kiddos. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with loved ones (especially all of my nieces and nephews), exploring the outdoors, mountain biking, roller skating, cooking, dancing, and crafting!
