Once an international and homestay student herself, Vanessa earned her Hospitality Management Diploma in Vancouver, BC. Prior to her chosen field in education, Vanessa worked internationally in the hospitality industry for many years. As a “people person” with over six years of experience working with international students (public and private sector), Vanessa brings a wealth of experiential and hands-on knowledge to the Langley team. Over the years, her family has become a long-term host to numerous international students; thus, Vanessa further understands how to match students’ needs with host families’ expectations. Vanessa is excited to assist homestay families and students for a successful and positive experience at Langley School District.
