Positive, loving, great sense of humor
About Ms. Vanessa
What I love about my job:
My passion is wellness and healthy living, and I absolutely love kids. This job gives me the best of both worlds because I get to teach little ones how to keep the bodies that God gave them healthy and strong. Plus, I get to play with them and just have so much fun!
I jump out of bed to come to work because I get to:
Have fun and fill my heart with all the smiling faces, hugs, and love from the kids.
Be surrounded by such Spirit-filled and loving teachers and staff.
Watch the kids grow in their physical abilities and confidence.
My prayer each day:
That God's love will shine through me and that I can really instill in these kids a sense of respect for these bodies that God has given them.
Three words that best describe me:
I am positive, loving, and I have a great sense of humor!
A little more about Ms. Vanessa:
My background is in dietetics, and in the years before I had children I worked for the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program. Pregnancy and early childhood are such vital times in life for nutrition and healthy living, and I loved helping these families. Then when I had kids I was quickly introduced to "real life" and how hard it can be to keep everyone eating well and being well! My two kids are currently students at FLDS, and when we started several years ago I quickly fell in love with the school and starting volunteering in all manner of capacities. I'm so excited to now share my knowledge of nutrition and enthusiasm for physical activity to the kids at Faith. I'm in awe of how God works and how He has led me to this place!
