When I first met Vanessa nearly 10 years ago, she was intimidating to this southern girl with her New Jersey accent (and competitiveness on the tennis court!). After getting to know her over the years, it has become apparent that she values friendship and enjoys building relationships . She has a genuine desire to build other women up. On the tennis court, she gives 110% and is a force to be reckoned with. Off the court, she is warm and welcoming to all she meets. She likes to encourage others to push themselves and use their gifts. She is an entrepreneur who has dabbled in several businesses and currently co-owns a successful fabric cleaning company. She is committed to raising her two sons to be strong, hard-working, kind men. I’m confident that she will continue to be a fine example of a graceful, strong woman for others to aspire to be! That is why Vanessa makes an excellent flyGIRL!
