Meet the IgniteHer Podcast Hosts!


Meet Angie!

Angie’s family situation growing up was chaotic and unpredictable, she often felt unseen and powerless. As an adult Angie always had a strong desire to connect with kids to ensure they feel valued. To her, igniting potential is helping kids discover their passions. Angie’s passion for music and creativity provided me with a strong sense of self which allowed her to remain resilient despite what was happening in her family. Through this podcast I hope we can amplify voices to create positive social change.


Meet Vanessa!

Vanessa is all about building self-esteem and confidence in youth and young women so they are empowered to pursue their

dreams! Throughout Vanessa’s life, she struggled with shyness, self-acceptance, and mental health. This is why Vanessa is so driven to do the work that she currently does today. Vanessa ignites potential by building on strengths, providing opportunities, and discovering each person’s ‘why’.
