Vanessa is the proud recipient of the Craig Noel Award for OUTSTANDING SPECIALTY ARTIST for her body of work as a voice and dialect coach throughout 2019. 

Thank you to San Diego Theatre Critics Circle for this recognition.​

"She is that rare form of artist that gets the whole picture. She is both a visionary and truth-finder."

Rob Lutfy, Associate Artistic Director, Cygnet Theatre

"Her extensive musical knowledge makes her extremely valuable; Vanessa understands language and she also understands the subtle modifications necessary to make musical sense of dialect, diction and expression."

Elan McMahan, Musical Director, Moonlight Stage Productions & The Old Globe Theatre

"She made it easy, fun and also helped me as a singer listen to the dialect like a musician would listen to music. Helping hear things I hadn't before. If you are on the fence about where to go for a dialect coach, run, don't walk. She's truly the best."

T.J. Dawson, Actor & Producer, 3-D Theatricals
