Vanessa Bertozzi
Director of Community & Education

Brooklyn, NY

"Too much is never enough" — That’s Vanessa Bertozzi’s motto, especially when it comes to Etsy and the handmade movement. Vanessa works at Etsy as Director of Community and Education, running a special project to foster partnerships between Etsy and art schools, museums, organizations and locals. Her department at Etsy focuses on giving small creative businesses the tools to grow and connect. Previously she launched and ran the Etsy Blog. Before she joined Etsy in January 2007, Vanessa made a documentary about the history of used clothing and diaspora communities, and earned a Master’s in Comparative Media Studies at MIT. Vanessa comes from a family of artists on one side and bankruptcy lawyers on the other. This dual nature fuels her passion to help creative entrepreneurs succeed.
