Ms Vanessa Rosales
 
Vanessa has been with us at The Growing Place for 4 years. She has a Bachelors from CSUN along with additional experience working as a behavior therapist for two years. As a behavior therapist she worked one on one with children that had different needs and learned different strategies to give them confidence in their educational goals. 
In her free time you can find her working out, hiking and taking her dogs for a walk. She loves being active, yet loves stimulating her mind by working on word searches or journaling. She also loves going to the movies and spending time with her rather large family watching the Dodgers along with a good bar-b-que.
