Victoria lives in Alameda, California. Victoria loved to play school when she was younger with her stuffed animals and dolls. She always wanted to be a teacher. Victoria’s dream came true after raising three children. She became a teacher in 1989. Later, she received a Masters in Reading at Boise State University in 1999.
Victoria has always loved animals. She surrounded her own family with dogs, cats, a bird, a turtle, a bearded dragon, red-bellied frogs, a rabbit, fish, and a guinea pig that squealed loudly with happiness. Many of these animals lived in her classroom to the student’s delight. Today, she volunteers at the Alameda Cat and Rabbit shelter called Faas. The cats, kittens, and rabbits are often scared but their transformation they make is wonderful because of the volunteers who handle them daily and get them adopted in their forever homes. Now, she lives with one dog, one cat, and a turtle. She especially loves spending time with her adult children because she believes family is everything.
Victoria retired in 2020, so she could spend time writing and being an author. Her ideas often come while she is walking the dog or observing others. She has so many stories she can’t wait to publish them all.
