Working alongside other foundations such as UNICEF, the Red Cross, TNC and WFP, Vanessa is committed to continually strive towards a sustainable future for the planet.In the last few years, Vanessa has traveled around the globe to capture endangered species and animals, cultures and characters in rare, beautiful and time-sensitive moments among incredible, visual landscapes, in many different visual formats. She has had 2 series on Animal Planet, and continually works with many networks as talent, host, and producer. Vanessa grew up in Buffalo Valley on the outskirts of Teton and Yellowstone National Parks in Wyoming. She was raised on a dude ranch where she had her first horse at five years old. A combination of cowboy naturalists and artsy theatre gurus, Vanessa's parents nurtured her desires for a career incorporating stage, screen and music mixed with her love for the wild world of animals and exotic travel. Between cooking on pack trips for her family's Triangle C Ranch, white-water rafting at the Boshoff family Rafiki Safari Lodge in Costa Rica and exploring the diverse world above and below the surface-  Vanessa's passion for Eco-travel is apparent in her daily life.
