Born in New York and fascinated with all things art since her early childhood, Vanessa knew there were actually few logical choices as far as her higher education was concerned. She chose the New York School of Interior Design, where she obtained rigorous training necessary to prepare her for a career she had always dreamed of.
Upon receiving her BFA degree, Vanessa was a well-rounded professional, but she decided to keep on learning and completed a one-year Master of Professional Studies in Lighting Design program.

So this faculty seemed like a perfect choice … and turned out to be a perfect springboard for her dream career.
