"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,
"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
"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,
Vanessa is the proud recipient of the Craig Noel Award for OUTSTANDING SPECIALTY ARTIST
for her body of work as a dialect coach throughout 2019.
