As an associate counselor, Vanessa supports clients ranging from health tech companies to non-profits in various areas, including strategic content development, media relations and reporting, and social media management. Having grown up in France to a Danish father and an American mother, Vanessa attributes her passion for stories, and their power to connect people, to her unique background.
An avid reader and writer who enjoys collaborating with others, Vanessa graduated from Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications with a B.S. in Public Relations. Throughout her undergraduate career, she was a member of Hill Communications, the student-run PR firm, and served as Advertising Director for Zipped Magazine. She also interned at MCI Group, a leading events-management firm based in Switzerland, and is fluent in French.
After relocating to Rochester, Vanessa started out in digital marketing, and worked as a Public Relations Representative for Entercom, where she assisted with radio station events for over 2 years. In her downtime, you can either find her with her nose in a book, or catching some live music.
