Meet the Owners!

Welcome to We Rock the Spectrum – Laguna Hills! Vanessa and Brandi are the proud owners of this gym.

Born and raised in Southern California, Vanessa holds a BA in Business-Finance, and an additional AA in Early Childhood Education.
She is married with three boys, ages 17, 13, and one. She has spent her career growing top-rated preschools in Orange County, and is the current owner of a local preschool. Vanessa has spent years working with local families and their children, specializing in helping all children reach their full potential in an inclusive environment.

Brandi is native Kentuckian, but has called California home for the last nine years. She is married with two boys ages seven and five, and a one-year-old girl. Brandi holds a BA in Integrated Strategic Communications, BA in Political Science, and Masters in Public Administration. The majority of her career has been spent in the not for profit sector, wanting to focus on making her community better.

Vanessa taught Brandi’s boys in preschool for four years. Throughout this time, they worked together to provide seamless transitions from school to home, as well as behavior and learning strategies. Brandi’s boys flourished in this environment. Together, Vanessa and Brandi continued to discuss ways they could provide benefit to even more children in Orange County.

They are so excited to have the Laguna Hills location of We Rock the Spectrum, and have it continue as a resource and benefit for ALL children of Orange County!

“We noticed that the area lacked indoor playgrounds that could be fun and entertaining for kids, yet relaxing and enjoyable for parents at the same time”
