Vanessa has been in the television production industry since high school, when she was hired on the spot by a local cable company after they observed her work in her school’s television production studio. She worked as a member of the station’s remote production crew throughout high school and college, and has been with NEP for nearly six years.
As an Account Manager, Vanessa works with high-profile clients including the New England Sports Network, CBS Sports Network, and Comcast SportsNet. She is responsible for all aspects of the client relationship, including truck and crew assignments and ensuring that all production needs can be met.
Prior to joining NEP, Vanessa worked in remote production for five years, covering high school and college sports, concerts, telethons, and parades. She helped run a local newsroom and served as a production assistant for the nationally syndicated television show “Forensic Files.” She joined NEP in 2006 as a Crewing Coordinator, and was promoted in 2008 to Account Manager.
Vanessa is known for her client management skills, and is proud of the relationships she has built, which are based on mutual understanding, flexibility, and teamwork. A die-hard Red Sox fan, Vanessa specifically asked to be given the New England Sports Network account, even if it meant expanding her workload beyond usual levels. Vanessa is a graduate of Northampton Community College.
