Vanessa Kellam has a Bachelor of Education from Deakin University, Australia. She taught Health and Human Development to high school students for many years before specializing in sexual health education. Vanessa has been working with children and their families in the area of sexual health education for the last seven years, working with a non-profit organization in Melbourne, Australia. She relocated to the Bay Area with her family and is now working with Health Connected to promote open and honest conversations with adults and their children.
