Vanessa was born and raised in Hammond, Louisiana and received a bachelors in Hotel, Restaurant, and Tourism Admin from the GREAT University of New Orleans. Her career in hospitality began right out of college in leadership roles in both the hotel and timeshare industry. Those roles took her from living in New Orleans, to the Texas Hill Country, and now Steamboat Springs. Vanessa's career plans took a pivot when she found love in the mountains, and chose to stay and not relocate again. That is when Moving Mountains and Vanessa found each other, and it has been the best experience working for a company that not only cares about their employees, but also the communities they serve. Vanessa loves that she can continue connecting with people from all over the world and ensuring they have the best vacation experience possible. 

Outside of work, Vanessa enjoy hiking, cooking (She's a chef at heart), going on road trips.
