Vanessa Watson


She is currently the Sr. Associate Director for Parking Operations at Clemson University. With over 34 years of experience in university parking, she entered the field of parking after graduating from Central Wesleyan College (Southern Wesleyan University) with a B.S. in Accounting and Business Administration. Thinking parking was only going to be a pit-stop, she found the parking world offered her many opportunities and challenges which caused her to stick around to see what was going to be next. During her years of service at Clemson University, Vanessa has the unique distinction of serving as a Customer Service Representative, Budget Manager, Transportation Demand Manager, Interim Parking Director, and as an Information Resource Consultant managing T2 Systems applications and other innovative parking technology initiatives. While working at Clemson University she also received her Master’s degree in Human Resource Development.
