Episode 102: Vanessa (Vee) Maddox | Consultant & Entrepreneur

Jun 15, 2021


We have to find our own strength.” - Vee Maddox


Vanessa began her career in IT as a staff assistant and trainer for the U.S. House of Representatives.  She went on to work for Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 organizations, federal government agencies, federal contractors, and the U.S. Congress.

In August 2009, Vanessa and her cousin Naomi Williams co-founded TheGirlfriendGroup (TGG). TGG was a global business/social community for women. TGG’s mission is women helping women in all aspects of life. TGG began as a tribute to her late sister Valerie.  That effort lead to the founding of her first startup, V.R. Maddox Consulting LLC in 2010. 

In 2017, Vanessa was elected as the first Black woman in the history of Leesburg, VA to sit on the Leesburg Town Council. 

Vee is currently writing her first book/memoir entitled, The Politics of Nice: How a Catholic School Girl Navigated the Halls of Power.
