Editorial Director - [e-mail]
Vanessa has worked on the magazine since April 2005. Previously, she spent 18 years at Government Computer News, as managing editor, news editor and writer. She finds government IT endlessly fascinating because of the technology-mission connection and the driven nature of people who choose federal service. In her former spare time, before her family-of-four years, she liked to read a book in one or two sittings and dive wrecks along the Carolina shores and reefs around any Caribbean island.
