vanessa lewis: changing how students think about money

Meet Financial Literacy VISTA Vanessa Lewis


I am ecstatic to serve as the 2011-2012 Michigan Campus Compact AmeriCorps*VISTA for Financial Literacy at Lawrence Tech!

I hail from the great state of Texas where I received my B.A. in Journalism-News Writing and Editorial from the Mayborn School of Journalism at the University of North Texas. I double minored in Spanish and Social Science.

As the second Lawrence Tech Financial Literacy VISTA, iI create and sustain effective partnerships between faculty, students and community organizations to promote financial literacy.

My passion for service stems from my strong beliefs and values. I lead my life with “Lift as you climb” and “Service to all mankind” in mind. I love people, cultures and languages.

Would you like to volunteer on a financial literacy project? Would you like to speak with interested students about the financial issues which impact them? Or would you like me to help you locate a financial literacy speaker for your event? Please contact me!
