A second career is modeling, which did jump start her acting career. At age five, she began modeling for major department stores. This evolved to print, runway, video/film and promotional work.
What other artisic skills does Vanessa maintain? A jazz dancer with a ballet foundation since age eight, then picking up a little hip hop, compliments her acting and modeling careers. Music training includes voice, violin, guitar and piano. She draws, preferring illustrative (pencil, chalk) and acrylics/oil projects. She has advanced art courses from Diablo Valley College and Santa Monica College; even computer-art courses. (And, should you play volleyball, work out at the gym, skateboard or snowboard - she's in!)
