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 and an honored nominee for OUTSTANDING LEAD PERFORMANCE IN A PLAY in 2022 for The Children at Moxie Theatre.
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
