Vanessa is currently a sports anchor and reporter in Houston, Texas for the NBC affiliate (KPRC-TV.) She covers every pro sports team in Houston at home and on the road; telling stories and creating content for both the on-air and digital spaces. 

Prior to landing in Houston, the Indiana native covered sports and news in Cincinnati for 2 years.  She was also a freelance sideline and pit reporter. 


Vanessa got her start as a freshman in college in Indianapolis, where she was hired to cover the Indy sports scene for an FM radio station; everything from the Colts to the Indianapolis 500. From there, she was hired as the In-Arena host for the Indiana Pacers and Indianapolis Indians, covered the NFL combine, and was the sports correspondent for the nationally syndicated comedy show "Bob and Tom."

Her true passion is telling exciting human interest stories that go way beyond highlights and stats, be it in the studio or on the sideline.
