Vanessa Machin Perez, Board Member Micron Technology, External Relations Manager
Vanessamoved to Lehi Utah from Hawaii to launch her Micron career in December 2018. She joined as a Senior Recruiter before joining Micron’s Global Talent Brand and Innovation Team as a Program Manager where she leveraged her expertise in digital marketing and content creation to support Micron’s social media advocacy program.
More recently, Vanessa was promoted to Senior Manager, External Relations for Micron Technology Utah and will hit the ground running as the Fab 2 liaison for government, academic and community relations.
Vanessa has a genuine passion for meeting and connecting people to accomplish remarkable things. She is a natural engaging with and influencing large audiences and brings three decades of unique expertise in recruiting, as a consultant, entrepreneur, designer, published author, film producer and executive leader within the long-distance passenger rail industry.
Vanessa served 23 years with the Australian Defence Force and more than 19 years within Special Operations Command—which substantiates her unconventional and innovative nature. She is the spouse of a retired US Marine Corps Combat Veteran which underscores why Veteran hiring and Military community causes are very close to her heart.
Vanessa loves the outdoors: global travel, kayaking, scuba diving, trail-running (more like walking lately!), cross country skiing, camping and abseiling. She completed her first Honolulu Marathon at 49, her second at 50 and she ran a half marathon after arriving in Utah. She adores spending time with husband Bill and 10-year-old son Henry. If she gets time for herself, the creative in Vanessa loves interior design, painting, writing, brand-design, inventing and gardening.
The self-proclaimed LinkedIn Nerd is always ready to deliver career readiness, professional branding and LinkedIn training as her ‘give-back’ to her community. Vanessa is fascinated by people, graphology, Military history, & outer space—there is even a 2-mile crater on Mars named after her!
