|Appearance||The Hand You're Dealt, Just Passing Through|
She possessed the psychic ability to telepathically see the last images that another person would see before dying. Using her ability, she tried to save Carlene Manning and a student, but failed to prevent their deaths, though she, Nathan Wournos, and Duke Crocker succeeded in saving another student.
Years later, Duke, under possession, would ironically kill Vanessa's nephew, Victor Kirby. Vanessa's vision finally came true when Duke was choked to death by Nathan Wuornos in a heroic sacrifice.
