Student success has been at the core of my personal and professional life, and I love that the work we do allows students to expand their understanding, explore their strengths and examine their viewpoints.


Vicky graduated from the University of Virginia with a Bachelor of Science in Applied Math and Aerospace Engineering. That's right — rocket science. She preferred the creative side of business and quickly moved into the education sector, exploring educational sales, ed tech and marketing to students. Vicky is currently completing her MBA at the Indiana University Kelley School of Business.

Travel Experience

Vicky traveled to England, Wales, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Liechtenstein as part of three separate study tours in high school. In 2017 she visited Italy and the Czech Republic. Her growing travel bucket list includes Scotland, Ireland and New Zealand.

Did You Know?

Vicky once flew with the Blue Angels. Technically, she only shared air space; Vicky was in a single-engine Cessna 152 taking a flight lesson and the Blue Angels were practicing for an air show nearby.
