As a Massachusetts native, Vanessa was born into a family of foodies and raised with an affinity for fine dining, cooking, and great food. Vanessa graduated from Boston University’s College of Communication with a major in Advertising and minor in Art History. She recently relocated to San Francisco from Boston where she was a Marketing Manager at Whole Foods Market, using her passion for food, photography, and social media to grow their Instagram accounts by 400%. Previously, Vanessa worked in marketing and public relations for companies including the Liberty Hotel, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the Boston Sailing Center, and Halpern, a premier PR firm in London.

Vanessa is thrilled to re-enter the agency realm and bring her passion for brand strategy and innovation to the AF&Co. team. Apart from dining out at various restaurants and visiting local wineries, Vanessa is training for her second marathon and enjoys exploring the city with friends, traveling, and pursuing her love of art and design.
