Vanessa Bastien

Community Engagement Specialist

Vanessa is a San Diego native with a history of choosing non-traditional paths. She is passionate about personal and professional development and loves supporting the students in their efforts to make such a significant life change. An eclectic individual, she loves nothing more than diving deep into a new hobby – currently, she’s working on learning about sewing clothes and bags! When she’s not curling up with a good book or working on hobbies, she’s with her two children – painting, singing, or playing outside in the beautiful weather.
