This is Vanessa's fourth year at Victory and she feels so blessed to be able to come back to a club she loves so much. Vanessa graduated high school in 2006 from Dumas High School on the panhandle of Texas. She has been playing volleyball since age 8 and is a defensive specialist. In 2006 she was the first libero after the new rules were instated. That year her team went to state and she was named 1st time all district defensive specialist and broke school records for passing and defense. She went on to college where she attended the University of North Texas in Denton and played libero for the club team for 4 years and decided to Coach the following year after graduation.
Vanessa graduated with a degree in Psychology and finished a second degree in Speech-Language Pathology and currently works full time as a pediatric speech therapist. Beyond all of that she loves volleyball and is so passionate about the sport and loves to teach people techniques and ways to better themselves on and off the court. She still plays occasionally when her busy schedule allows her to but she is super excited to continue coaching at this amazing club and impart some of her knowledge about the sport.
