Vanessa’s theses from her Masters and Bachelor degrees involved the implementation and evaluation of a coping skills program for at-risk prisoners and the implementation and evaluation of a stress management program for mainstream prisoners. Vanessa is a strong believer in the evaluation of services to ensure that they are achieving client and funder goals and helping people reach their potential. Vanessa has over 20 years’ management experience of large government/insurer funded programs for clients with injuries/disabilities requiring assistance to overcome barriers and achieve their goals.
