Vanessa currently works as a Career Development Consultant and Teacher for Sun West School Division. From this perspective, she sees the influence of new and emerging digital technologies and experiential learning activities in making career decisions. Vanessa embraces the notion of helping students build necessary skills and competencies to support discovery, learning, and growth – lifelong! Engaging in experiential learning activities is one way of helping students and teachers/career practitioners develop essential 21st century competencies and make informed decisions about their future.
Vanessa currently resides in the small rural community of Elrose with her husband and two energetic teenage boys. She is grateful for technology as it has afforded her many opportunities to make meaningful connections both personally and professionally while creating a home in rural Saskatchewan. She enjoys camping, fishing, archery, reading, photography, and quality time with family and friends.
