In Vanessa's earlier years, she played soccer and cross country. These sports gave Vanessa a deeper understanding of rehabilitation for sports injuries when she became injured in these sports. Vanessa chose to pursue a career in the physical therapy field because it provides the opportunity for her to assist people in returning to the activities they love. Vanessa began her education and received her Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology Pre-Physical Therapy from the California State University of San Bernardino, she then continued her education to receive a Physical Therapist Assistant Degree from Concorde Career College. Her constant drive for patient care and eagerness to continue learning is what gives her the ability to educate others on how to lead a healthy and active lifestyle.
