Head of Finance & Administration
Vanessa ist unser Head of Finance und somit mit ihrem Team für das Geld, Controlling und die Personalverwaltung zuständig. Außerhalb des Büros ist sie sportlich unterwegs und widmet sich hauptsächlich dem Yoga. Auf das offizielle Yoga-Teacher-Training (RYT 200), das sie mit Bravour bestanden hat folgte gleich eine Zusatzausbildung zur Vertiefung ihres Wissens. Ihr Fleiß wird zukünftig wohl noch mehreren älter werdenden NETWAYS´lern zugutekommen.
