Vanessa has a background in acting and writing for stage and screen, having studied Honours and a Bachelor of Performing Arts at Monash University, before moving to Sydney to study a Bachelor of Dramatic Art (Acting) at NIDA. She started a theatre company for which she wrote, acted and directed new plays, was a finalist in the Beverly Hills Film Festival for a feature screenplay, and won Best Short for a comedy web-series at the Impro Film Festival. Through this, Vanessa has dedicated her time to studying people and human behaviour, in order to understand their drive, desires, and individuality, which has married well with her new career in recruitment. Vanessa now recruits Permanent staff for some of Australia’s largest and well-known organisations, and she gets a real thrill out of matching excellent candidates with equally excellent companies.
Outside of recruitment, Vanessa is on a mission to eat her way around Sydney, scavenging for the tastiest morsels and drops of crimson this great city has to offer.
