Vanessa grew up in Toledo, where she finished high school, after which she graduated from Ohio University with a BA degree in Fine Arts, and joined the African-American Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority. She then started taking dancing classes with famous professionals such as Alvin Ailey, George Faison, and Otis Sallid, and her career as a dancer soon began on Broadway in the original production of “Dreamgirls” by Michael Bennett. During this period, her colleague from “Dreamgirls” and famous R&B singer at the time, Rhetta Hughes, asked Vanessa to direct a music video for her song “Angel Man”, plus she also was in the ensemble of the short-lived musical “Bring Back Birdie”. Her net worth certainly had a good base.

Subsequently, Vanessa career in the film industry began as soon as 1985, making her debut appearance on television in the ABC daytime soap opera “All My Children”; however, she didn’t become popular until she moved to Los Angeles in 1986, after which she started receiving calls from several important people in the film industry, and began appearing in shows such as “The Colbys” (1986), and “227” (1987), all of which increased her net worth. Furthermore, in 1987, Vanessa made her debut film appearance in the film “Number One With A Bullet”, which was followed by the role of Imani Izzi in the comedy “Coming to America”, appearing next to Eddie Murphy, which added a considerable amount to her net worth.

In 1990, she was selected for the role of Delia Wayne in the TV series “Equal Justice”, and her next big role came two years later, starring in the TV series “Rhythm & Blues” (1992-1993). In 1995, she co-starred as Maggie Langston opposite Joe Morton and James Earl Jones in the soap opera “Under One Roof”, the first drama series to feature an African-American as a lead character. During the same year, she featured in the film “Crimson Tide”, and a year later in such film titles as “America’s Dream”, “Daylight”, and “The Cherokee Kid”, all of which contributed to her growing wealth.

The new millennium didn’t change too much for Vanessa, as she continued to appear in a number of production including the TV series “Boston Public” (2001) as Mrs. Michelle Ronning, the film “Bad Boy” (2002) playing Christine Hodges, and in the film “Cheaper By The Dozen” (2003) as Diana Philips. In the following years, Vanessa had many supporting and leading roles in such TV and film titles as “The District” (2003-2004), “Lakeview Terrace” (2008) and “Hawthorne” (2010-2011). All of these appearances increased her net worth by a large margin.

Most recently, she has had supporting roles in “The Undershepherd” (2012) portraying Deaconess Carter, “Shameless” (2011-2016) as Carol Fisher, and in 2016 in the comedy-drama “Southside With You”, as well as starring in the TV soap opera called “Saints & Sinners”, which will add further to her fortune.

Vanessa’s performances during her career as a dancer and an actress has brought her nominations for many important awards, the most significant being for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for “Under One Roof” in 1996, for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series in 2002 for “Boston Public” and in 2004 for “The District”.

Speaking about her personal life, Vanessa married anesthesiologist Dr. Anthony Calloway in September 1988; the couple has two children together, and their current residence is in Los Angeles, California. A few years ago Vanessa was diagnosed with, but successfully treated for breast cancer.
