Vanessa Valerie Tay

Integrated Marketing Strategist in New York

Creative, unique, ambitious, and unafraid to stand out from the crowd - That's who I am in a nutshell.

Hello! My name is Vanessa but my friends call me Sparkles, and my spirit animal is the Unicorn. I have a wide range of musical genres on my playlist, ranging from Skrillex to the Harry Potter soundtrack.

Professionally, I refer to myself as an Integrated Marketing Strategist because I have a combination of creativity, skills, detail-orientedness and experience necessary to design and execute a 360 campaign which combines all traditional aspects of marketing with digital and social media, along with community engagement.

Outside of work, I'm obsessed with Barre classes, I occasionally blog at Sparkles.Life, I make crystal jewelry at, and pose for and post photos of myself excessively on Instagram (@_.sparkles._).

I cannot and would not want to live without chocolate and bubble tea - specifically of the Gong Cha variety - and I am also a strong advocate for adoption of shelter animals, being a fur-mom to an adorable Southeast Asian Pariah Dog.
