Vanessa King grew up wanting to be a backup singer, and/or a pediatrician. Unfortunately she disappointed her family and went into film, but she is happy to diagnose you via WebMD and/or meet you at Boho Karaoke for a 3 hour set.  She DVRs Jeopardy and knows the lyrics to every tv theme song from the 1980s.  You can follow her sarcasm on Twitter @manhattancanuck.
