Vanessa Hernandez

GM - TriBeCa

3 words to describe you? Energetic, accentual, bossy

Strangest thing you’ve ever eaten? The strangest thing I've eaten is tuna salad with tostones

What’s an interesting fact about you that no one would guess? Nobody would guess that I am a good handywoman. I can fix things and figure out why things are not working

What do you do to stay in physical and/or mental shape? Now that I am working in our Tribeca location, basically going up and down the stairs (a great workout). Going to the gym relaxes me a lot too but when it's too much. I take days off and travel to any place where there is a beach so I can smell the fresh air

Where did you grow up and how did you end up in New York? I am a Dominican born and raised. When I was young, my older sister and I visited our family in New York. During one of those trips, my father told us we were not going back to the Dominican Republic

What would be impossible for you to give up? I am an overthinker. I try and try to give that up but it's still a work in progress. Honestly, I don't think I can accomplish that goal

If you didn’t have the job you have now, what would you do? If I was not working at Mulberry & Vine, I would probably end up teaching politics and human rights

Vanessa Hernandez is the General Manager of Mulberry & Vine at the Tribeca location. Outside of work, she loves to sleep and take naps.
