Vanessa joined our staff part-time as Publication Coordinator in 2007 and began serving full-time as Church Secretary in 2012. She is the creative force behind our publications. She oversees the weekly worship bulletin and e-newsletter, special service bulletins, and the Kirk Courier monthly newsletter, using her graphic skills to highlight and enhance all these announcements. She also maintains our website and serves as a conduit for all church communications as well as the church master calendar. Vanessa is often the first voice on the phone and your first contact when visiting WPC. Daily she strives to assist the church family in their myriad attempts to serve. You can reach in the office Monday through Thursday and anytime via email.
Vanessa and her husband, Charles, have been married since 2001 and share their home with cuddly cat, Cilantro Jackson, aka CJ, whom they adopted in May 2020. Together they have 7 adult children and have been blessed with an abundance of grand and great-grandchildren. Summer is her favorite season and when she is not working, Vanessa’s favorite past time is being with her family at the beach, a festival, Busch Gardens or outdoors on the deck at home. Her hobbies include jewelry making using natural gemstones, paper crafting and reading. Recently she has discovered the world of audible books which has upped her reading game tremendously! Vanessa is a member of Denbigh United Presbyterian Church where she is currently serving as a Ruling Elder. Pre-COVID she served as an usher and volunteered as an art assistant with the mid-week youth program, Faith Weaver Friends.
Favorite Quote, written by Vanessa's son Michael:
FAITH, AIR & LOVE live in the same place…you can’t SEE them, you just have to FEEL them.
