Who is she?

Vanessa Cobbs was born in New Jersey but moved to Washington at the age of two. Her family wanted a new start, so they settled in a small country county. Growing up she and her family experienced racism, which is why she was inspired to be a voice for the voiceless. She realized that her experiences helped her develop a sense of compassion and empathy for others who were underprivileged. 

Upon graduating high school, Cobbs decided to obtain an associate of technical arts degree in dental assisting. She then proceeded to work as a dental assistant for 10 years. 

She was then encouraged to look into social work by a friend. Feeling inspired, Cobbs started working for a nonprofit called Solid Ground. The nonprofit seeks to "end poverty and undo racism and other oppressions that are root causes of poverty in our community." She then worked her way up from being an office assistant to being a tenant rights counselor. 

In 2017 the organization named her the Solid Ground's Social Justice Award Winner. Cobbs is said to be working to start her own nonprofit called Soapy Wheels. When you think Cobbs, it's hard not to think upward movement.

Cast breaks down the show Seeking Sister Wife.

1. She is a star on a reality show

Cobb's can be spotted every Sunday at 10/9 C on TLC's reality show "Seeking Sister Wife". Now on its second season, the show which is filmed in Georgia follows "four plural families in various phases of seeking, dating or transitioning a new sister wife into their lives." The Snowden family is one of the four families. Husband Dimitri Snowden told his wife when they first started dating that he wanted more than one wife. Ashley Snowden said this was something she could agree with and so the two have been actively searching for the perfect woman to bring into their lives. 

The pair currently has three children, but Dimitri wants more. According to Ashley, she doesn't want to have any more kids, so a sister wife would be perfect for saving the day by wanting to expand the family. 

After their second attempt at finding a sister wife, Cobb is the perfect math they have been waiting for. 

2. Has been courted by Dimitri Snowden

Dimitri Snowden has been courting Cobbs for six months. During these six months, it was questioned if Cobbs was the right fit for the family. According to SoapDirt, things were going well but Ashley placed a few dating rules on her husband. The rules came after Dimitri cheated on Ashley with one of the prospective sister wives on season 1 of the show. Ashley made it clear that Dimitri and Cobbs had a curfew. The two needed to be finished with the date before midnight to avoid any sexual temptation. 

The two eventually became intimate with one another and that is when Dimitri decided he wanted to take the next step and propose.
