A resident of the Houston area since 2011, Vanessa began working in community journalism in her home state of New Jersey in 1996. She joined Community Impact Newspaper in 2016 as a reporter for the Spring/Klein edition and became editor of that paper in March 2017 and editor of The Woodlands edition in January 2019.
The Woodlands area has largely been spared the widespread, catastrophic flooding seen in parts of the Greater Houston area in events such as Hurricane Harvey, but officials said now is the time to act to prevent those scenarios from unfolding in south Montgomery County.
