Vanessa Feliciano was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and move to Vermont four years ago with her partner Joe, and their son Liam. Her work with children began back in 2004, while as an undergraduate, she served as an After School Counselor for JCC Rockland. By the time she graduated with a BA in Communications, she was the Assistant Site Leader of the program.
Upon graduating, Vanessa joined a family owned and operated indoor children’s playground where she served as an Event Coordinator. Within two years, she was promoted to Assistant Office Manager and served in this role right until she moved to Vermont in 2015.
Before joining the GMMS family, Vanessa was the Assistant Site Coordinator for the Village Kids Program at Summit St. Elementary, operated by the Essex Junction Parks & Recreation. She holds numerous childhood development certificates, which allow her to substitute in our classrooms when needed.
When she is not here at school, Vanessa enjoys writing, painting, road trips, playing with her Frenchie Vada, and learning more about the hidden gems of Vermont. She also travels back to NYC at least four times a year to visit family and friends.
