Who is she?
Vanessa is studying Public Relations and Advertising at Liberty University and always wanted to work for a non-profit organization. Immediately speaking with her, you can feel her warm heart and how it’s focused on people. She ultimately strives to meet them where they are and help in any way possible.
She defines herself as a west coast girl who grew up in California and Colorado, thrilled to hopefully one day go back. Her ideal dream job would be to do something that allows her to have a family and work while still being a wife and mom.
Her father has been a huge inspiration to her throughout this career process. Her inspiration with him comes from how he’s established his own business nearly 20 years ago, creating his own marketing and designing ads himself. With his wealth of business experience, she feels at ease getting any type of advice from him.
Vanessa at Humbly I Serve:
As a Public Relations Intern at Humbly I Serve, she has gotten an astronomical amount of insight into what a job after college will entail.
She has learned so much in her time here; the greatest benefits have to do with nonprofits functions, establishments, and the creative thinking that goes into working at an organization. All these skills she will use for a long time.
In addition, Humbly I Serve has taught her how to affordably plan and execute good events and campaigns, helping her to reach her aspirations and follow through with her dream of working with children.
Vanessa reminisces about her first day at Humbly I Serve “…it was crazy, but I immediately knew I was gonna learn a lot”.
