Vanessa comes to bluegreen with a strong background in Accounting and Finance, having worked across industries such as Oil and Gas, Retail, Real Estate Finance, and Ski Operations. She holds a BBA in Financial Consulting from Southern Methodist University. Her experience in the corporate world allowed her to learn about different organizations and contribute to strategic development but left her feeling creatively unfulfilled. Serving as the “glue” of the studio, she relishes her role of Operations Director where she gets to apply both her analytical skills as well as contribute creatively on a daily basis. She is beyond thrilled to be a part of such collaborative and innovative environment where she is constantly learning and inspired. When not fully immersed in the world of Landscape Architecture, Vanessa loves to ride her bikes, eat tacos, and hang with her two amazing daughters.
