Testimonials

“I have been living with mental illnesses since I was 13... hospitalized more than 10 times since I was 19. After being in therapy for the last six months, I feel more stable than I have in my whole life... I love what they have done for me.”

Vanessa has worked in the human services field since 2007 and joined Headway in 2011. She works with the families of children who are having trouble attending school. ”I try to define the problem then ensure that children and their families are supported and have access to resources to help them through any obstacle in their lives,” she says. 

In her free time, Vanessa loves to dance; bake desserts; and be with her family, boyfriend and friends. She also works as an interpreter for home care nurses and as relief staff for Casa de Esperanza.
