Advisor Council

Vanessa Wright Adams is a native New Yorker, born and raised in Brooklyn with strong family ties to the Carolinas, particularly central South Carolina. A proud Alum from the University of South Carolina, she is a big fan of SEC Football. Vanessa relocated to Scottsdale, Arizona in 2006. Most of her professional life was spent in the travel and tourism industry working in various roles for a global airline but never as a flight attendant. She enjoys travel and has been to 6 out of 7 continents and because she does not like the cold she may take a pass on Antarctica. Currently, Vanessa is an independent Human Resource Contractor working for a popular tech company in Scottsdale, Arizona and a growing insurance services company in Ft. Washington, Pennsylvania.


Vanessa enjoys her family & friends and has a passion for helping others. She is committed to advancing awareness about dementia. She is a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated which is an organization dedicated to public service. In her spare time when she is not caring for her mother, she loves planning and organizing trips and special events through her destination planning company, PLAN IT AZ.
