Vanessa Bernardo

Vanessa has enjoyed sport her entire life, as a competitor in younger years and now as a passionate participant in ocean swimming, yoga and most recently running. She believes unequivocally in the healing power of movement, particularly when combined with nature and community connection. Vanessa has a BA in Communications and Diploma of Business Marketing specialising in Sports Marketing, and worked at the Sydney Olympic Games liaising with international broadcasters and athletes. Having previously worked in the commercial sector, Vanessa made a deliberate shift in the past few years to For Purpose organisations, with a focus on mental health and the power of connection and sport in positively impacting wellbeing.
