  • About

    Vanessa provides administrative support to the Women's Studies Department Chair. Her responsibilities include managing the Chair's calendar, preparing confidential correspondence related to faculty matters, and collaborating with the Chair to create Faculty and Executive Committee meeting agendas. She manages faculty recruitment details and prepares faculty tenure and promotion materials for submission to the College of LSA.

    Vanessa enjoys creating posters and flyers for our departmental events and is the social media guru for the department; in 2009 she created our Facebook page and in 2010 brought us to the Twittersphere. Today she manages our Facebook and Twitter presences. In addition, she supports various development initiatives for Women's Studies - assisting with stewardship activities for donors, identifying grant opportunities & preparing applications, and creating and organizing student/alumni mixers.

    For fun, Vanessa enjoys riding her bike to work, playing the flute with SEMFA, gardening and eating cheese (ALL of the cheese!). She is a native south Floridian, Michigan alumna and current MBA student at EMU.
