Hailing from St. John’s, NL, Vanessa is driven and inspiring. As a busy Mom and wife, Vanessa ensures that the things that are most important to her are at the centre of her life. She is focused and strong both physically and mentally. She leads by example and is a role model for a healthy mind equals a healthy body. Vanessa is balanced and head strong. She is focused on her goals and thinks outside the box. When she first came to the Empowering Indigenous Women for Stronger Communities project, Vanessa aspired to make a positive change in her community and she had a dream to do bigger things. Her intuition and protective instincts led her to want to serve her community in an influential way, and her drive and determination brought her to the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary where she is now serving as a member of the provincial Police force. Even through her days are more than full, Vanessa finds the time to host workshops focused on Mental Health and Violence against Women.
