“I tell my patients and their families they are going to be braver and stronger when they are done. I’m honored to help them prepare for the challenges ahead.”

Vanessa Sanne is a Nurse Practitioner specializing in palliative care. She has worked in healthcare for more than two and a half decades and oncology since 1998. Vanessa’s approach to care is built on the foundation of a partnership with her patients. She is there to guide but they are in the driver’s seat. Her role is to support their decision making, providing education and guidance to help them achieve goals consistent with their stated values, while striving to manage symptoms associated with their disease and treatment.

In her spare time, she enjoys family time with her husband, four children and dog. Together they enjoy playing music and watching movies. Twice a year, Vanessa travels to Haiti with a medical team supporting primary care.
