Originally from Bryan, Texas, I moved to Arizona in 2013 for new opportunities and a change of scenery. After an introduction to C++ course, I was completely hooked on coding. This led to completing a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science with a focus on Cyber Security in 2021. In my spare time, I enjoy riding my motorcycle, hiking, traveling, camping, working on carpentry projects, and spending time with my wonderful wife.
While in my last year of school, I joined Valore Partners for the opportunity to work with industry experts in a smaller, more close-knit company. From day one, I’ve felt very welcomed here, and am appreciative of their accommodations regarding my class schedule. After graduation, I was offered a full-time position with the firm, and I happily accepted.
Since starting my career as an Associate Consultant, there has certainly been a learning curve. The first project I worked on was much larger than what I normally encountered in my academic career. But with resources and mentorship readily available from both the leadership team and my colleagues, I’ve been able to continue to grow my skills and my confidence.
I’ve found my experience at Valore Partners to be challenging, but comfortable in terms of growth. I credit that to the strong support system they have created here, as well as interesting and varied projects. Working at Valore Partners as my first professional job will undoubtedly be invaluable as I continue forward in my development career.
Vanessa has been with Valore Partners since May 2021.
