Since joining Secret Location in 2016, Vanessa has been integral in shaping the company’s unique culture. She continues to maintain the curation and execution of the overall employee experience for full-time and contract staff, which includes nearly 100 people across the Toronto and Los Angeles offices.
Vanessa brings an imaginative approach to developing initiatives that encourage an environment where people are celebrated for their uniqueness and urged to be open, feel safe and inspired to be creative. She has been directly involved in a number of programs across both Secret Location and its parent company, Entertainment One, including projects related to culture, innovation, production and more. Vanessa led efforts to preserve the indie-minded, open culture throughout Secret Location’s transition during its acquisition by Entertainment One. She also helped establish the company’s very first Pride event and now sits on the organization’s newly developed Diversity & Inclusion Council.
In addition to her day-to-day responsibilities, Vanessa has been an essential member of the Secret Location team, supporting the launch and celebration of the company’s most recent projects including Welcome to Wacken, Blasters of the Universe, Transpose and The Great C.
