DAM New York 2023

The Art and Practice of Managing Digital Media


Vanessa Escobedo Barba

Marketing Project Manager

ONNIT, a Unilever company

Vanessa's creative professional journey started at the University of Texas at Austin while studying Journalism. Her passion for storytelling soon evolved from the written word to a successful 15-year photography business. As her family and market needs changed, she looked for new ways to challenge her creativity and moved into the digital environment as a Digital Asset Manager.

Vanessa is currently at Onnit, a leader in the health and wellness industry, where implementing a DAM system from the ground up was just the beginning. She has continued to lean into her creativity as a Marketing Project Manager, leading marketing projects, launching campaigns, and managing the DAM.

Before attending a HS DAM event, I never knew the true impact or importance of DAM. For the first time it felt like I wasn't alone, but part of something so much greater. I left inspired and motivated to take what I had learned and apply it our DAM system. I look forward to the event every year!

The Henry Stewart DAM NY conference did not disappoint. The breadth of topics and experiences covered were amazing.  I could have used three of me to cover all the sessions I was interested in attending!
