Vesna was born in Heidelberg, Germany, and raised in Boca Raton, Florida. She graduated from the University of Miami, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree. Vesna had a strong desire to enter the medical field after graduating, so she decided to further her career and become an anesthetist. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from Barry University. Vesna then moved to Naples in 2002 to pursue her Master’s degree in Anesthesia from Florida Gulf Coast University.
Over the past 10 years, she has worked with Wolford College’s nurse anesthetist program, teaching anesthesia students in the clinical setting at Naples Community Hospital and Naples Day Surgery. Vesna has over 15 years of both inpatient and outpatient anesthesia experience in pediatrics, general surgery, vascular surgery, neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery and plastic surgery. She and her partners use deep intravenous sedation and regional anesthesia techniques to minimize risks and lower the incidence of postoperative nausea and vomiting.
