During her time at NRDC, Vanessa focused on two main projects: the recent potential of offshore drilling expansion and shark conservation as it connects to Latin America. Both of these projects were highly dependent on collaboration with multicultural individuals and experts across the United States' West Coast and Latin America. 

Vanessa’s presentation will highlight these two projects and her work to prioritize the connection of individuals’ local expertise to broader efforts encompassing many different communities.
