Vanessa Gagnon - Tourism Calgary in Calgary, AB
Vanessa (you may know her as @nessincalgary) is a small town girl (Yellowknife represent!) who after spending three years living abroad discovered a deep love for Calgary's mix of vibrant city life and welcoming small town spirit while attending SAIT's Travel and Tourism program. As a member of Tourism Calgary's marketing team, Vanessa is passionate about telling Calgary's story to visitors around the world. When she's not working you can find @nessincalgary supporting Calgary musicians, sipping a local craft beer with friends or sampling the newest eats at one of the city's acclaimed chefs restaurants. For Vanessa advocating for her city comes willingly and naturally. She draws inspiration from Calgary’s mavericks, or, as she puts it ‘rad people doing rad things!'
