Vanessa Hogan

ILS Manager, Shasta County

I am privileged to be an ILS and manager at the Shasta County location. I have been with Compass for a year and a half starting out in the field as a life coach. My time on the field was invaluable, to be able to personally serve clients and see firsthand how we can support and encourage them in life, will remain a treasure to me.  It is there that you learn if this type of service is for you.

Our family relocated from the Vancouver BC Canada area in 2011 where my husband and I owned and operated a 3-D ultrasound business.   I have worked in many facets of business and customer service over the years and the thing that has remained the same no matter where I am is the desire to serve and help others.

During university I worked as a therapeutic tutor for dyslexic children and it was such a joy to be able to see the children read for the first time after struggling for many years. Compass stirred a passion within me to work alongside people with disabilities that I hadn’t had since working with my dyslexic students.

Compass values are closely aligned with my personal values.  It is such a joy to be able to go to work every day and be confident that the whole team is working towards the same goal. I aspire to give hope to the hopeless and to inspire crushed spirits to achieve dreams beyond what they felt they were capable of.

Currently I reside in Bella Vista with my husband Brant and our four children ages 9 to 17.   We have 3 donkeys, a few dogs and cats and the most breathtaking views in Shasta County.  We spend our weekends with our children at gymnastics, roller hockey, soccer and basketball.
