Although coming from very humble beginnings, she did not allow it to rob her of her dreams.Vanessa started her Play Production Company, Woman With A Vision in 2003. As an Advocate for Domestic Violence, each play has a story that takes the audience by storm, bringing deliverance through love and forgiveness. 

She has written, directed and produced several play productions over the years, such as,"In Bondage," "Moment of Rage," "Restoration," "Living Behind The Mask, " "The McCormicks," and many more.  As a community outreach initiative for the youth, Vanessa founded S.T.E.P (Straight Talk Empowerment Project) along with “Spring Break," a teenage alcohol awareness play production. Her upcoming play production, "If Only In My heart, A love story" will hit the stage during Black History Month on February 29th. Vanessa has dedicated her life to making the world around her aware and an overall better place to live. She models excellence and serves as a role model to the Black community.
