Vanessa Barksdale


Vanessa is a recent (and proud) alumna of the University of Maryland Baltimore County, where she completed a degree in Social Work with an emphasis in Public Policy. As an extension of her social policy research and advocacy work, she became heavily involved in social action and grassroot voter awareness initiatives. When she’s not at work, she can be found serving the community through her membership in Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., serving on the board of the nonprofit Learning Unlimited, or she can be found playing with her Chihuahua and eating sushi with way too much wasabi.
