Vanessa started training in Performing Arts in her early teens practicing theater and dance, and she hasn’t stopped since then.

In regard to dance, she has been exploring different styles over the years but her deepest experience is in West African Dance and Afro-Brazilian Dance, performing and creating along Abayomi Collective for over 8 years in Brazil.

As an actress she has been working mostly on-camera in short films, series and commercials. Now living in the multicultural city of Toronto, she finds her way to artistic expression in the Latin American community, being an active member of Grupo Teatro Libre, a grassroots theater group centered around collective creation.
