Hello, my name is Vanessa. I have been working at Texas Periodontal Associates for over a year now but have been an 'honorary Porras' since 2011. I first started working with them as a caregiver for their wonderful daughter Elena, and this year will be 8 years that I have been in the family. I'm a pretty reserved person, but consider myself to be extremely dedicated and hard working. I love to paint and sculpt- my wish would be to one day be able to have my own little pottery studio in my backyard. I have a fascination with anything to do with criminal justice and am constantly looking for any new crime documentaries on Netflix. I look forward to all that is to come in my personal and professional life and hope to be able to be a part of this team for years to come.
