Vanessa Cuccia is the founder and CEO of Chakrubs, a company that manufactures and sells crystal dildos, was in many ways predestined. From her father, a chiropractor and the inventor of a non-surgical medical device called the Extentrac, she inherited her interest in healing and her entrepreneurial spirit. From her mother, the CEO of the company that sells the Extentrac and a self-professed clairvoyant following what she refers to as a “paranormal experience” when Vanessa was four years old, she inherited her business acumen and her inclination toward the metaphysical. It wasn’t until the age of 24, however, when an acquaintance introduced her to the science of crystology while she happened to be working at a sex shop, that the idea for Chakrubs first came to her. Too ambitious for just one creative pursuit, Vanessa is also an accomplished actress and musician. She currently resides in Syosset, New York.
In this episode Vanessa Shares:
