Producer & Multi-Media Journalist
Vanessa joined the NBC15 team as a Producer & Multi-Media Journalist in June 2021, however, it wasn’t her first time stepping foot into the newsroom.
Vanessa began working in the newsroom as an Associate Producer in July 2020, contributing to online and on-air coverage of the coronavirus pandemic, 2020 presidential election and other local news stories.
She continued in her role through her final year of college at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she also worked as a reporter and editor for the student-run newspaper The Badger Herald. In May 2021, Vanessa graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in English Literature and certificate in Digital Studies.
When Vanessa isn’t working, you can find her enjoying food and drinks at a restaurant on the Capitol Square, spending time with family and friends, or binge watching 90’s Rom-Coms.
Vanessa is looking forward to further connecting with the city of Madison in her new role and helping share stories that are important to the community.
