Vanessa Rivera was born, raised, and lives in Miami, Florida never tiring of the vibrancy that is the heartbeat of the city. 

Soon after marrying her husband in 2011, she received her Bachelor’s in Psychology. 

Taking the scenic route to figuring out her life’s calling she managed her grandfather’s jewelry repair business. 

While pregnant with her first daughter, she discovered the fumes from the chemicals required to repair jewelry could be lethal to her unborn child, so she thought “Perhaps something new is in order…”

And so became a stay at home mom to her sweet newborn. Fresh out the womb, Vanessa shared the good news with her 8 week old baby that she was going to be a big sister!

During this time mothering her “irish twins”, she went through the profound experience of deconstruction (coming to the realization that there are religious beliefs that are harmful and need to be unlearned) and was introduced to the Enneagram at a three-day workshop with Rob Bell

Being unable to unsee the truth of her type structure, she began the work of peeling the layers of her false self which continues to this day. 

After years of study under teachers like Chris Heuertz, Nan Henson, Marion Gilbert, & Lynda Roberts she found the Enneagram to be her “next right step” and became an International Enneagram Accredited Professional.

Currently, she is writing a book about her early childhood in Miami, specifically Hialeah, with her grandmother, in an effort to leave her children a tangible and literary link to their great grandmother and Miami-Cuban heritage.
