In college Victoria began honing her skills as a writer through her major in History which taught her how to debate and defend a view or idea, efficiently research topics, and form coherent points that she could confidently articulate.

After college she began an internship where she would spend the next two years sharpening her skills as a journalistic writer and finding her writing voice. Rather than writing long, detailed papers arguing a specific point on a given topic, she learned to consolidate the information she was trying to convey and her own opinion into two or three paragraphs, while still getting her point across.

Moving on from her internship, she spent some time learning the structures of social media and how to write for and present content through outlets such as Facebook. At the same time she maintained a blog for her employer and learned how to tie shorter social media posts to longer, more in-depth blog posts. She also helped with internal editing and proofing for her company, refining her skills with grammar.

She currently spends her free time writing fictional short stories and assisting friends and family with any writing related issues they may come across.
