Vanessa Jimenez – Managing Instructor

Managing/Night School Instructor

Vanessa is a Susan Moore High School alumnus who also attended Blount County Career Center to jump start her desire to be in the beauty industry. She completed her cosmetology certification in 2016 at New Beginning College of Cosmetology. Vanessa fell in love with the concept of teaching and came back to join NBCC after becoming an instructor in 2018, where she took on teaching our day and night classes. Her disciplined training method produces a sense of independence in our students, which leads to a huge part of their success. Vanessa also enjoys going hiking, kayaking, or anything that incorporates the outdoors. “Striving for success without hard work is like trying to harvest where you haven't planted.” - David Bly
