Vanessa Williams was born and raised in Montana and currently lives in Denver, Colorado where she is signed with the prestigious Wilhelmina Modeling Agency. She currently holds a World Title and 3 National Championships in Tae-Kwon-Do.
Vanessa is a graduate of the University of Montana getting her degree in Pre-med and plans to move to Los Angeles in the fall to continue her education in Acupuncture. Currently, she works full time at Pangea Organics in Boulder, CO as their Sales and Logistics Coordinator.
She promotes Organic skin care and facial care and realizes as a pre-med student that health is of utmost importance even for your skin. She started modeling 3 years ago in Montana and made several trips to Seattle, in order to build her portfolio.
It was important for her to connect with the young women of today and break the standards that are portrayed in today's society. Standing 5'3, her presence is larger than life when she steps in front of a camera. Vanessa believes that through hard work, determination and perserverence any goal can be accomplished, you just have to want it bad enough. Her role models include, Twiggy, Carolyn Murphy, the Dali-Lama and her mother.
