Vanessa, our esteemed Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner, brightened our Renew family in November 2023, bringing a wealth of expertise and genuine warmth to our healthcare team.

Born and raised in the vibrant city of San Francisco, Vanessa began her nursing journey there in 2009. Armed with a Bachelor’s and Master’s of Science degree in Nursing from Chamberlain University, she found her home in Richmond, Virginia, with her husband, two children, and two dogs.

Vanessa’s career spans diverse nursing roles, from cardiac care to aesthetics, shaping her holistic approach to patient well-being. Her commitment to health and wellness advocacy is not only evident in her career path in obesity medicine but is also complemented by her extensive knowledge in Bio-Identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).

Beyond her professional dedication, Vanessa finds joy in family moments and exploring new places, echoing her California roots. Her values of compassion and expertise align seamlessly with the Renew family, where she continues to inspire and empower patients on their unique paths to wellness.
