Before becoming a journalist, Vanesa spent years as an economic consultant. In 2004 she graduated with a BBA from the University of Miami, with a major in Economics, and shortly thereafter went to Boston University for her master’s degree, also in Economics. Overseeing financial projects in the US and Argentina proved extremely interesting, but she yearned to write. After spending a summer at Harvard polishing her writing skills and learning about journalism, Vanesa found a new path. In 2015 she enrolled in a journalism master’s program at DiTella University in Buenos Aires and just a few days after the program ended, began writing for local newspaper La Nacion and later Clarin, reporting on crime and cybercrime. Beyond writing, what Vanesa loves most about this profession is the research involved and creating connections that lead her to new stories.
