Vanessa became passionate about fitness after losing 75lbs and transforming her life through healthy lifestyle. She graduated with high honors at the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in chemical engineering. After working for the nuclear navy for 5 years, she left her career in engineering to pursue fitness. In 2012, she opened her own personal training business, Fulfitment Personal Training. Teaching group fitness still remains her greatest passion.
