Blogger (Gold Coast Musings), Influencer, Model, Student, Mum of Three
A mum to three daughters, a model, blogger, influencer and student… Vanessa leads a busy yet fulfilling life. She began my motherhood journey as a teen mum – and often shares parts of this story with her community as well as the trials and tribulations of having three girls with such a big age gap (21,18,7). She is currently studying for her diploma in counselling (majoring in abuse, addiction and mindfulness therapies), and she works hard to create a real, raw and empowering space on Instagram, where women can feel loved, uplifted and heard. In 2017, Vanessa decided to start sharing her story of abuse, domestic violence and her struggle with body image through Instagram and her blog. The response certainly caught her by surprise and continues to be the driving force everyday to create raw, unfiltered, unedited content – including raw vs edited videos and images – to help women see past the illusion of “perfection” on social media. Her goal is to make a big impact and help women, teens, and young girls find their worth in more than their appearance. One of her recent achievements was coming second in the Lorna Jane ‘Fearless Female” search amongst thousands of entrants, where she was able to share her weight GAIN journey.
In addition to her blog and Instagram, she also works part time as a model and has worked with reputable, big-reach brands such as Berlei, Target, Piping Hot, Bondi Boost, Gingham and Heels and Bridal Boutiques. She particularly loves working with brands on (and off) Instagram to help them reach a wider audience whilst providing quality images and a genuine non-“salesy” approach, which benefits both her audience and her clients. This powerhouse beauty is a sure-fire choice for your next campaign.
