Anyone seeking assistance cutting through bureaucratic red tape or dealing with the federal government now has one more advocate to fight for them. Vanessa F. Hicks-Callaway was hired to work in Congressman Blake Farenthold’s (R-TX-27) Victoria office beginning Monday, Feb. 8, 2016.

Hicks-Callaway was born and raised in Victoria. She enlisted in the United States Army, and later became a commissioned officer, serving as a military intelligence officer. She served honorably for 26 years and returned to Victoria with her husband, Coach Jason O. Callaway, and their two children.

Hicks-Callaway earned her Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Sam Houston State University and her Master’s degree in Human Resource Administration from Central Michigan University. She is an avid volunteer in the community in organizations like the DAV, DAVA, VFW, CASA, Kiwanis Club, Faith Family Church, and many others. 

“Anyone who meets Vanessa will agree that she is extremely knowledgeable and hardworking, and we’re glad to have her in the office and the community,” Congressman Farenthold said. “Vanessa is here to help anyone dealing with the federal government, especially veterans, and I encourage area residents to get in touch with her to see how she can help.”

Congressional Caseworkers, often referred to by Congressman Farenthold as red tape cutters, are tasked with assisting veterans needing help with the VA or any veteran services, dealing with the IRS, the Social Security Administration, citizenship and immigration, passport services and more. To reach Vanessa, please call the Victoria office at 361-894-6446.
