Fun Fact: When Vanessa isn’t cheering on Emmy at a softball game or listening to Ethan sing at a performance or watch his tennis match, she can be found smashing an overhead playing tennis, dancing like nobody’s watching at Zumba, baking a new sweet treat with her daughter or enjoying an evening full of laughter with her family. Life is good!
