Vanessa, originally from Chapel Hill, comes from a family of pet lovers, growing up with her first dog Heather, parakeet Willis, and cat Tiger (who lived 19 years). She also had fish, rabbits, and hamsters, and when she was nine, Vanessa learned to ride, brush, and feed horses.

The real love of her life was Della, a sweet Lab-Beagle mix who saw her through many seasons of life, moving from the mountains of North Carolina to NYC and back to Chapel Hill, her college years, marriage, pregnancy, and everything in between.

Vanessa has worked as a graphic designer for 20 years and is thrilled for the opportunity to spend more time with furry friends. She lives in Carrboro with her pup Hilda, daughter, and boyfriend and spends her free time reading, taking long walks, and exploring nearby cities.
