Vanessa D Hayden currently lives in Butte, Montana with her husband and 3 cats.
Vanessa has a Master’s degree in Technical Communication and works as an adjunct professor at Montana Tech in the Communication department.
Taking advantage of Montana’s scenery, Vanessa enjoys hiking and mountain biking. Montana is home to some of the country’s most unique historic sites and Butte was once home to a vast copper wealth that helped electrify the nation. The backdrop of Butte’s mining past provides unique artistic opportunities and historic research. Once known as ‘the Richest Hill on Earth,’ Butte has provided countless inspiration to Vanessa, who has made Butte her home.
