Vanessa is a senior at UNCW majoring in Communication Studies. She will be graduating in May and attending graduate school in the Fall to attain her Master’s in Communication Studies/Technology. She will be serving as a Teaching Assistant for introductory Communication Studies courses as well as tutoring students in Public Speaking.
Vanessa does not come from a background of performance, but she is excited to participate in the Hawk Tale players and learn about her abilities as a storyteller. She has experience working with kids through both volunteer work and her job at a local gymnastics studio, so she hopes that will help her find ways to engage the students as she shares stories with them.
During her time at UNCW, Vanessa served as both Risk Management and President of Delta Zeta Sorority. She interned with Kickstand Events where she helped with floral design, decoration preparation, and day of coordination at wedding events all over the Wilmington area.
