Vanessa Hanson is the quintessential all American model from Orange County, California. She lives two blocks from the beach, and definitely looks the part of the beach girl. Her exotic look comes from a mixed background of Mexican and European.

In college Vanessa was scouted and started her career in Los Angeles where she eventually chose to model full time. At the US Open of  surfing Vanessa won a contest to be a guest UFC Octagon Girl. That set things in motion for the UFC in addition to modeling. She has worked with clients such as GQ, Maxim, FHM, Self Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Tory Burch, Jaguar, TJ Maxx,  Joico and Nasty Gal to name a few.

The UFC keeps Vanessa on a tight schedule, but she makes time for modeling work in LA (Tricia Brink Management) NY (Muse Models) and Toronto (Dulcedo Models). Vanessa has a love for yoga, nature, traveling and food. She is currently getting her yoga teacher training certification.  

Vanessa's favorite part of modeling and the UFC is being around different people and living a spontaneous life, and she has a lot of fans to keep her busy.
