Vanessa McCarron - Judo

Name: Vanessa McCarron
Province: Nova Scotia
Sport: Judo
NCCP Status: Dojo Assistant Instructor Certified
Mentor: Carolyn Savoy

A bronze medallist in judo at the 1999 Canada Games, Vanessa turned her attention to coaching even before retiring as an athlete. It turned out to be an excellent fit as she’s currently coaching athletes of all ages and abilities in Halifax.

Keen on ensuring she stays up-to-date on the latest coaching techniques, Vanessa has made a point of engaging in many professional development opportunities so as to better support her diverse group of athletes. A mother of two, she is no stranger to working with children which is a big help when she is coaching athletes as young as four-years-old.

By day, Vanessa is an advertising coordinator. She enjoys running and staying fit to keep up with her son and daughter.
