10-second bio: Vanessa Corrêa, creative director who lives in a menagerie
Name: Vanessa Corrêa
Title: Creative Director
Department/Unit: Marketing Communications/Creative Team
Location: 7th floor, Franklin
When I started working at UCOP: April 13, 2009
What I do for UCOP in five words or less: Creative direction for systemwide communications
Best part about working for OP: It has to be all the charming and supportive colleagues.
Something you don’t know about me: I live with an Australian Shepherd, Maine Coon cat, magical white rabbit, and four hens. And my daughter and husband squeeze themselves in there, too.
One weird fact about the town I grew up in: Being Brazilian and American, I don’t really have one “town in which I grew up.” My family is spread across three continents and speak multiple languages.
If I could have any job in the world (besides the one I have now) I would be: I have plenty of things to do without the vicissitudes of work. As Oscar Wilde said, “Work is the curse of the drinking classes.”
