Welcome.

I’m Vanessa. It’s so nice to meet you!

I am the founder & owner of Vanessa Anne Operations Management. I partner with mindful, visionary entrepreneurs to grow their business through operations management and comprehensive business planning…providing thoughtfulness, attention, and care toward themselves, their teams and their clients. Together, I help you bring your vision to life while remaining aligned to the path and pace that feels good to you.

When I’m not supporting clients, I love being with

Mark and Lyla, enjoying time with our extended families, and planning our next adventure.

Are you feeling exhausted and overwhelmed by all the dedication, attention and focus required to start and manage your small business or private practice? It doesn’t have to be that way!


It IS possible to run your business with ease and joy in a way that complements your life and goals. All while intentionally and confidently striving toward bringing your vision to life.


That’s my sweet spot! Creating order out of chaos, To Do lists, and planning #allthethings. When we work together, you can finally let go of your long list of “shoulds”! Instead, you can simply be fully present in this moment and plan for your next best step, knowing that your business will grow and evolve exactly the right way at exactly the right time.

Vanessa Anne Operations Management was born out of a desire to find balance in my life that included engaging in meaningful work while having time to invest in both myself and my growing family. I wanted my business to support my life, not the other way around. Can you relate?


My goal is to use my strengths to serve the world in a way that doesn’t leave me feeling exhausted at the end of every day and waking up dreading every morning. I want a life that grants me the opportunity to work hard, play hard, and rest hard… with all 3 areas living in a beautiful symbiotic relationship. And I’ve done exactly that! Carving my own path for myself is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I fully believe entrepreneurialism can be a path to lasting creativity, joy and freedom.


And I want that for you too! You don’t have to work 7 days a week and constantly feel like you’re 10 steps behind… there’s a better way. And it all begins with a beautiful partnership where you’re confident that I care about your vision as much as you do.

Vanessa Anne Operations management is my "dream job" and allows me the opportunity to serve other entrepreneurs in seeing their own visions become a reality as I support them in managing the back side of their business with efficiency and ease (and maybe even a little joy and fun!).


I'm here to help you – the mindful, visionary entrepreneur – grow your business through:


• Thoughtful and intentional business planning

• Mindful business development

• Strategic operations management

• Customized, people-centric systems and processes

• Caring and supportive team management

• Encouragement of ongoing self-care


You can think of me as your right hand, your faithful #2, your COO, or your VP. But, most of all, you can think of me as your steady, reliable partner who has your back and believes wholeheartedly in you and the beautiful, unique gift you have to offer to the world.

For those who love assessments (Me!), I am an Enneagram 3, an ENFJ on the Myers-Briggs, and a 6-8-2-3 on the Kolbe, Enablement & Tenacity in Working Genius and Integrator in Rocket Fuel. I think critically, feel deeply and represent the following values:


Reliability – I do what I say I will do, when I say we will do it.

Flexibility – I adhere to deadlines but allow the space in between to be flexible to accommodate for each person’s needs and style.

Balance – We are multifaceted people, we must account for the whole of our lives in all we do. There is a time for work, play and rest.

Listening – All voices will be allowed to be heard. Feedback will be received.

Grace – Grace is sufficient for all things.

Enough – I live and work from a place of being enough, allowing for rest and a cease from the unending quest for more.

Regard – I value people at my core and make all decisions through the lens of humanity.

As a certified DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS, I am here to provide highly-customized, thoughtful operations management and comprehensive business planning to YOU so YOU can have the freedom to dream, grow and confidently move toward YOUR vision. I guarantee to provide a dedicated and reliable strategic partnership that takes into account you, your leadership type, and the uniqueness of your business. When you work with me, you receive support from a fellow entrepreneur that is willing to take the time to listen and partner with you to build a successful business you love that serves the world. If you are ready to grow your business and invest in what matters most to you, I’m here. Let’s do this!
