Founder, Chief Executive Housewife
Hello, hi, howdy and how do you do? My name is Vanessa and I have spent the past 30 years or so trying to figure out what I wanted to be when I grow up. I am still working on it but what I do know is that I don’t want to be…..A dull tiresome stick-in-the-mud middle-aged woman with no aspirations or goals… So what have I done to avoid that?
Oh, I keep myself busy with one child at ACS and one in University, 2 dogs, earning my master’s degree in education, a fabulous husband, a business owner, and the Chief Operating Housewife of Abu Dhabi.
My adventure in Abu Dhabi started in 2005 when my darling husband called and said “ya wanna move to Abu Dhabi?” I said, “ya sure… now where is that?” So off I flew with my 10-week old daughter and my overly energetic 3-year-old son to the unknown land of the sand. Then BAM… I instantly fell in love… Abu Dhabi was wonderful!
I have spent the past 30 years in the educational field working with amazing children and families in the US and the UAE. I love life and being part of it. I am always looking for the next challenge and a new chance to learn! I hope you find Housewives of Abu Dhabi a friendly, informative, and excellent place to meet your new best friend!
