Vanessa was born and raised in San Francisco California. She attended and graduated from SF State University with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business and Marketing. 

After working several years in the financial industry for large Investment firms and banks, Vanessa noted a need for establishing a true relationship with her clients. Spending time to get to know them personally and professionally. The desire to help clients understand not only the importance of long term investment strategies but what these are and how they work.

She decided to best achieve this by working directly for her clients. In July 1995, Vanessa established In Touch Investments, now In Touch Financial Services.

Staying “In Touch!” with her clients is highly important.
