After many years in entertainment and media, Vanessa James has become a brand to follow and love! She’s recently been featured in USAToday, 10Best, and now contributes to online outlets: Latina Magazine, The Latin Kitchen, MimiChatter.com and more. Additionally, she has created a lane for herself as an event curator and producer which has lead to national recognition from Global NewsWire, NasDaq, Hispanicize, AdWeek and more. Most recently, she has been recognized in her home country of Trinidad and Tobago’s national newspaper “The Trinidad Express” for her cultural contributions to the diaspora abroad. “James is well on her way to making her mark on the media industry said Miami Herald World Editor John Yearwood”.

Her warm personality and energetic style continues to get her noticed by brands like JetBlue, General Motors, DELL, Palace Resorts, Barbados Tourism Authority and more who have each booked James to either voice their brand initiatives or work with her entrepreneurial capacity.

Lincoln Motor Company most recently just honored Vanessa at her annual Women of Impact Dinner for her continuous commitment to excellence and social/brand footprint in Miami. Click here for the article!
