Working in broadcast media has been both an exciting and rewarding profession to be involved in. The road to working in this industry has been paved with hard work, tenacity, and the continued desire to learn and grow. Media is a tough industry to work in, but for me personally, it is one of the most gratifying and fulfilling industries to be involved in. I am so honored and excited to be a featured speaker for the Alliance of Women in Media this Thursday, February 23rd.
Come join me on Thursday, February 23rd at 6:30 PM at the C-Span building(400 North Capitol Street, Suite 650 Washington, DC 20001) for this special event.

“There is a story in everything we do, and as a journalist, it’s my job to figure out the best way to process and share this information… My job is about listening and learning. Journalism can be sad, emotional, serious and raw; while other times it can be fun, exciting, and entertaining. It’s a never-ending roller coaster ride and that’s why I love it…”
As a broadcast professional, Vanessa has reported everywhere from the White House to the red carpet and interviewed political leaders, celebrities, sports stars and everyday citizens. Vanessa is the host of “Distinctive Digs” on MRISTV, a real estate show that gives viewers an inside look at some of the most unique homes in the Washington metro area. She is also the co-founder and host of an award-winning multimedia web site and television program, “D.C. on Heels” Washington, D.C.’s premiere entertainment blog covering food, fashion & fun in the nation’s capital.
The short documentary “Town of the Sun, the Black Tide and Whales,” was co-produced by Vanessa and her husband Matias Camozzi. The film tells the story of a Japanese community and its relationship with whale and dolphin hunting as they face increasing criticism from the western world, especially through the actions of environmental organizations. It won an award in the “Documentaries: Short” category at the 2009 DocuWest film festival hosted by the Foothills Arts Center in Golden, Colo.
