The Think Taller Blog


Jeff Vanek


Jeff understands what it takes for you to grow personally. He knows that growth is rarely a single direction, but it can always make you taller—if you have the courage to reach for your dreams. Jeff started college majoring in communications, ended up graduating with a degree in political science and going off to law school. Ever interested in personal growth, he went back to school and earned a Master’s of Science and Technology–midcareer. He figures buying a red sports car might have been more fun in retrospect. Jeff works as a human resources professional for a software company helping people grow personally and professionally. Jeff writes articles for magazines on employment, business, and legal issues—with other assorted topics thrown in the mix. He lives at the base of Mt. Olympus with his wife, two boys, and dog Lucille Esmeralda McGillicuddy Ricardo Vanek—who just goes by “Lucy” most days.
