Vanessa hails from Fresno, California, and earned her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in 2009 from California State University, Fresno. Vanessa migrated to the Mile High City in 2012. Originally in education, Vanessa entered the Colorado cannabis industry in 2014, and immediately fell in love with providing safe access of cannabis to the public. She spent four and a half years working in dispensaries in the Greater Denver Area, and is excited about using this experience to contribute to the Simplifya mission. In her free time, Vanessa enjoys listening to music, playing guitar, practicing Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (when she isn’t injured), and exploring everything Colorado has to offer.
