Victoria’s love of senior citizens began at a young age. She was especially fond of her grandparents, who she spent a lot of time with in her early years. When they moved to Virginia, she was only six years old and missed them greatly. Unfortunately, they died at relatively young ages.
When Victoria graduated from high school, she truly felt the void of grandparents. It was then that she went to work at a nursing home as a nurse’s aide. Victoria also worked for home health companies as a companion caregiver for several years. Working as a nurse’s aide was truly the most rewarding job she ever had – until she became a lawyer, of course!
With a strong desire to go to college, she enlisted in the U.S. Air Force. Her first learned skill was as a carpenter/mason. She loved working with her hands and working outside in an unconventional job. Victoria then crossed trained to be a paralegal. She spent six years in the Air Force, during Desert Storm, which ingrained her with even more respect for our service men and women who served during WWII, Korean Conflict, and Vietnam Conflict.
Victoria’s time in the Air Force helped her develop the tough skin of a lawyer and the compassion needed to work with people every day. She lives everyday by her personal philosophy: Each person is an individual who deserves respect and the highest quality of life possible, regardless of age or ability.
Victoria is also the mother of twins Katherine and Christopher.
