Vanessa was a deeply loving girl whose radiant charm and exuberant passion graced the lives of all fortunate enough to know her. As we gather our thoughts during this trying time, we find solace in the memories Vanessa gifted us.

She was on the brink of commencing her second year pursuing a Nursing Degree at Georgian College and she loved working with young children, as evidenced by her enthusiastic involvement at a trampoline park dedicated to nurturing young minds. Looking forward, Vanessa harboured aspirations of utilizing her skills to care for the vulnerable, both children and adults, as a devoted nurse.
