Vanessa is KPLU’s newest staff reporter. She joined the team in June 2011 taking on the business and labor beat. Before that she was a freelance reporter for NPR, Marketplace and World Radio Switzerland. She’s originally from Los Angeles but has lived in and reported from New York City and Washington, D.C. She has a master of journalism from New York University.
