Just your average 23 year old girl, who aspires to be a fit, healthy eating, outgoing, fun, adventurous motivator for other young women. I'm originally from California and moved to Colorado with my family 11 years ago. I recently took the plunge and moved to Oregon after graduating from college to be with my boyfriend. I enjoy traveling around and going to cattle shows, whether I'm showing, helping or just watching. The cattle industry is one of my passions. I love to vacation, especially to Mexico where I can eat rice pudding and go to the buffet multiple times a day! I spend hours on end on Pinterest and Instagram and sit at local coffee shops to get my work done and drink Chai Tea.
Growing up with a mother who owned a clothing store has always made me interested in fashion and it was a natural fit when I joined her in the business and made some adjustments to make Blush Out West what it is today.
I'm Vanessa, mom to Wren, who you can read all about above, and also mom to Chase. I'm proud to say Chase is enlisted in the Army, is deployed and is busy flying UAV'S, insuring the freedoms we enjoy as Americans. He enjoys hanging out with his friends and snowboarding when he's home. I'm married to their dad, my high school sweetheart Shawn, and we love vacationing at the beach and exploring old homes and towns and doing things that make us sound like old people! I love anything beautiful with a little piece of its own history. I enjoy sewing, the sun and flowers and creating and building a sustainable business empire with Wren. I love to go on girl's trips, chatting, drinking coffee and laughing. So good for the soul. I have a passion for learning and implementing business ideas and being supportive of other women doing the same!
