I'm Vanessa...

Your coach and speaker

    Lets get started

Success coach + keynote speaker for the professionals ready to take their life and business to the next level.

I'm here to teach you what I know so you can build the career and life of your dreams.

If you're seeking to craft a joyful and fulfilling life, where your life is a direct reflection of your gifts and values, then we share a common objective.

I empathize with the challenges of turning this aspiration into reality, as it took me a decade of learning and another decade of practical application to achieve complete freedom in all facets of my life.

Now, my mission is to guide you on a smoother path, helping you expedite the journey toward a life you love without unnecessary obstacles. 

Things I really love...

Traveling & swimming in the ocean. I love adventure. 

I love quiet time listening to music, podcasts, and meditating.

Hosting a powerful podcast for deep authentic conversations.

Living out my wildest, grandest vision impacting others

Beginnings (2015-2017):

My journey started with a degree from Iowa State University, followed by a Graduate Degree in Social Work. In 2017, a pivotal moment led me to make a bold choice—to leave my job and fully embrace the world of speaking. This courageous leap of faith has become not only my greatest challenge but also the most rewarding decision I've ever made.

Expansion and TEDx Talks (2018-2020):

In 2018 and 2019, I elevated my speaking engagements, addressing influential leaders, professionals, and students on over 50 stages nationwide. This period also saw me honored as a 2x TEDx speaker. By 2020, I ventured into coaching, guiding professionals and entrepreneurs toward their next level of success.

Guiding High Achievers (2021-2022):

Having coached over 100 high-achieving leaders, professionals, and entrepreneurs across diverse industries, I've provided transformative guidance to individuals seeking profound personal and professional growth. During this time, I launched the Cracked Open Podcast, resonating with listeners in 11 different countries within its first four days.


Fast forward to today – my focus is on delivering top-notch 1:1 coaching to outstanding clients worldwide. Oh, and I'm still hitting those stages across the country, sharing insights and making connections. The journey continues, and I'm here for it!
