Victoria loves spending time with her daughter and husband. She also loves to train in Brazilian

jiu-jitsu, watch cooking shows and The Price Is Right. The game show reminds her of the time

she won a car on the show with Bob Barker when she was in college. It’s a funny story she loves

to share.

Although not a daredevil, Victoria went skydiving once – and that was enough for her!

Victoria is looking forward to serving the community with journalistic integrity and meeting new

and wonderful people.
