Position:
Chief Executive Officer

Background:
Vanessa’s determined, stubborn and quick to place blame. Underneath there is a nice person, but she’s laying dormant.

Vanessa is very calculated woman. She rose through the ranks from a nurse to become a CEO rather easily and we can only imagine that she’s done it by stepping over people along the way. But with a smile on her face.

Vanessa and Michael are old mates and he’s helped her get the job. In turn she’s keeping an eye of Connie for him – she knows Connie is after Michael’s job. Together they are going to whip the hospital up into a frenzy.
