Mrs Vanessa Johns-Powell I was brought up and educated in Cowbridge and now live in Bonvilston. I have been fortunate enough to live and work abroad and came back to the Vale to raise my family. I have an honours degree in Business and Leisure Management and a career background in hospitality and training. My career has been enhanced by working for companies such as Walt Disney World in the USA and Rocco Forte in the UK. I am now a Director/Partner in several businesses ranging from Insurance underwriting in London to Cottrell Park Golf Resort in St Nicholas.
