“I prayed for God to put me in a position to be a light for others, and He led me to Care to Change.” As a client care coordinator, Vanessa helps people interact with our team, answering questions about scheduling, billing, and all the other details hat may crop up in a given day. Knowing the impact traumas have had on her live and that of those around her, she’s happy to play an important role in helping people who are facing challenges on their journey to God’s love and lasting relief.


Vanessa knows physical health is a critical component of mental well-being, so she’s currently studying for certifications in personal training and nutrition coaching through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. She also operates a small custom apparel and accessories business.


She met husband Richard at church, and the couple now serves on the worship team at Journey Church. They’re raising a blended family of five kids ranging from an infant to a teenager. You won’t be surprised to learn that playing games, watching movies, crafting, and engaging in yoga and workouts makes up a big part of their time together. Vanessa also enjoys weightlifting and listening to podcasts.
