Vanessa "Van" Keefer is a former teacher. She is Earn's ex-girlfriend and the mother of their daughter Lottie.
First season Edit
The season finds Van, who lets her on-and-off boyfriend/father of her daughter Earn stay at her apartment half of the time even though they technically somewhat not together. Van is not really seen much throughout the season but it seems that she was trying to get back to dating but that didn't end too well for her, she loses her job as a school teacher for refusing to do a drug test and admitting to smoking marijuana the night before a surprise drug test, and that she deep down still has feelings for Earn as they become closer in the last two episodes of the season.
Vanessa is a very blunt and realistic person. She could be described as a feminist (as seen in episodes 1.03 and 1.06).
