Vanessa is the director of community and marketing at Krrb Classifieds, a product of AREA 17. She leads Krrb's marketing team with her passion for community development and creating local connections.
After years of reporting in Dallas and in New York City, Vanessa left the pull of journalism for the startup world. No longer on the real estate beat, Vanessa’s focus was transformed by the development of the sharing economy.
Vanessa likes to dabble in a little bit of everything – from DIY projects to crafting recipes for her own blog about local small batch food, to partaking in Improv Everywhere missions with her friends.
