A Thirst for Knowledge: Putting Education and Experience to Work

Massachusetts Maritime Academy Magazine

Vanessa DiDomenico ’12 finds herself in demand lately as she gains the experience and knowledge needed to inform those in her profession and throughout the industry on emerging topics. After leaving the Academy with a degree in International Maritime Business, she headed for China with Canada Steamship Lines, where she held various technical project management roles, as well as Carnival Corporation in the Corporate Ship Refit Group.

Since then, DiDomenico has added a master’s degree from the State University of New York, attended the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts, and received her JD from Tulane University School of Law. She is currently based in Washington, D.C., working as an associate with Blank Rome LLP. There, she is diving into various aspects of maritime law while also writing articles on cyber issues — an area that is fairly new to her. “It’s funny,” she laughs, “while I never really studied it in school, people think that because you’re young you must know what cyber topics are all about!”
