Vanessa joined Advent in the spring of 2008. She has served in executive support roles for the past 10 years and absolutely loves doing it. Having received her degree in Fashion Merchandising from Harding University, she has a real love for sewing and creating. She is serious about her coffee and her music and considers eating a leisurely brunch one of life’s greatest joys.
As Chief of Staff for Advent, Vanessa works hand-in-hand with John Roberson and Todd Austin to help maintain the unique culture of our team and keep our day-to-day processes running smoothly. On most days you can find her providing support to our sales team, ushering John out the door to keep him on schedule for his next meeting, helping maximize our interns’ experience, and countless other tasks. Her business card calls her The One REALLY In Charge, and that’s no joke.
