Vanessa has orchestrated media campaigns for a wide variety of clients, from advocacy groups to bestselling authors.

She regularly secures client coverage in major broadcast and print outlets.

Prior to joining DMG, Vanessa was the director of media relations for Javelin. Her planning and implementation of book rollout strategies helped make Javelin an industry leader in literary promotion, propelling numerous titles onto The New York Times bestseller list.

"Vanessa’s reputation precedes her. She’s a sought-after publicist who knows not only the media landscape but is dedicated to each client she represents. I’m thrilled she’s joining the DMG team" said President of District Media Group Beverly Hallberg.

"Beverly and I first met seven years ago while she was conducting a media training session, something for which she already had a stellar reputation in Washington. I was immediately impressed by her talent for navigating the media landscape and only came to appreciate that more and more as I got to know her over the years. The public relations team at District Media Group is heading for a brilliant new phase and I’m looking forward to being a part of it. I’ve been very fortunate to work with some wonderful people in the Washington PR world, and I can’t wait for this next chapter" said Vanessa Santos.
