Author + Women Empowerment Advocate
Hi, my name is Vanessa Bryant, and I am so honored that you found yourself here and want to know more about me. In case you don't continue reading this entire bio, the most important things to know about me are that I am a wife, a mother, a friend, and an every day woman looking to inspire other women to continually walk in their purpose.
I was born in Liberia, West Africa, and at three years old, I moved from the worn-torn country with my family to the states and was raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. At an early age, I was aware of my passion for helping people and found the nursing profession to be aligned with that goal. Before ever writing a book, I worked as a Pediatric Oncology nurse, and hold a Bachelor of Science in nursing and a Masters in Business administration.
After working for several years as a Registered Nurse in Pediatric Oncology, I went back to school for my masters in business administration. During that time, I was blessed with my first child and decided to finish school while pausing my career to focus on family.
That shift in my life led to an essential journey of self-discovery. I was reacquainted with my love for writing and began journaling as a route of expression. In 2019, I released my first book entitled "The Rib." This new journey has since allowed me to use my voice through social media, speaking engagements, and seminars to share my experiences and empower other women of all ages.
I hope to continue to use my voice to speak words of self-acceptance, faith, love, and empower women worldwide. I hope to connect with you through social media, newsletters, books, and upcoming events!
