Say hello to Vanessa…


Our Activities Coordinator – Vanessa – is originally from Los Angeles. She chose Cal State LA because it’s close to home and allows her to see her family as much as possible in between her busy schedule.


Vanessa originally intended to become a math or science major but finally decided to major in business and accounting. She wanted to learn what makes a business successful and felt that accounting gives great insights in to the inner workings of a business.


In her free time, she likes to search for new restaurants to eat out and catch up with friends. She is also an artistic soul and loves decorating, painting and making jewelry. She wants to buy and decorate her own home so that she can come back to her sanctuary and her dog at the end of a busy day.


Her favorite quote: “If you can solve your problem, then what is the need of worrying? If you cannot solve it, then what is the use of worrying?” – Shantideva
