With her heart on her sleeve, she always put others before her own wellbeing. Her theory in life -professional and personal, is that a smile does not cost us anything. That smile can change someone’s attitude 360 degrees. She says that now is a time to go back to basics of honesty, being human, showing that you care, admitting to failure, and having a chance to be successful.
She believes in leading from within, vision and purpose, passionate, transparent, integrity, coaching, honesty, confidence, and inspiration. She shows commitment and is passionate, a superior communicator, has accountability, is innovative, and values empathy, resilience, and humility. Vicki was a living kidney donor in 2007 for an acquaintance who became a lifelong friend.
Vicki holds a degree in Business for Organizations from a school in Canada, and is currently completing her PMP certification through PMI. Looking ahead, she plans to see where her skillset will benefit a Director Operations position. She is willing to relocate and travel. A humanitarian by heart, she credits her success to the fact she would rather give than receive. Vicki’s motto is to live life to the fullest, and be open to new adventures. She says if life is pushing you down, just get up and go, even if it’s for the weekend. It is important to rest your mind and soul.
