Vanessa Pugliessa

I have degrees in Marketing and Human Nutrition and a master’s in business administration. I have been working in different roles, from logistics to product development, but always in the food industry.

The challenge of feeding a growing population without damaging the environment has always been an interest of mine and I am glad I joined a company that has this concern as well.

I am happy to be part of NewLeaf’s team, in such a dynamic and diverse space, filled with possibilities and great potential.

Since I moved to the US I’ve been involved with different projects as a volunteer, such as being a Portuguese and Spanish interpreter, working with a group of mothers of toddlers and being a Girl Scout Troop Leader.

When not working, you will find me spending time with my family, doing crafts (or hoarding craft materials), water coloring, reading about astronomy or rushing to finish reading the book club’s book of the month.
