Never did she think she would be able to do something she loves for a full time job, but after taking a leap of faith to leave her office job of 16 years, Vanessa took on a new adventure as center manager at Sage. She finds her daily commute to the city worth it, as she gets a chance to truly serve others in this role, as well as deepen her knowledge of all things yoga and healing arts. Vanessa has been in the health and wellness industry for over 17 years--she started teaching fitness/yoga classes back in the good ol’ days at the Independence YMCA--and completed her her 200 hour YTT with Gina Caputo in 2008. When she is not at Sage, you can find Vanessa in the gym, walking her fur baby Jack, hanging out with friends and family, cooking with her hubby, or cheering on her daughter who is a pole vaulter at Emporia State University.
