After spending nearly 20 years as a news anchor and reporter, Vanessa transitioned her broadcast communication skills and broad, multi-platform media experience into the Public Relations realm. She now serves as a Public Relations Counselor for The Meridian Group. As part of the PR team, Vanessa helps to both foster positive ‘brand recognition’ and develop strategies to generate media coverage for clients all while growing relationships with contacts. Vanessa prides herself on community involvement and philanthropy and looks forward to continuing her support of the many local non-profits and foundations with which she’s been involved over that last decade in Hampton Roads. When not working the phones to pitch a story, you’ll find Vanessa serving as MC for local events, enjoying red wine, karaoke, the beach, CrossFit, and cooking up new and unique Paleo recipes.
