Vicki has been drawn to the spotlight and the stage ever since
she can remember. She was always writing and directing plays
through elementary school and coercing all her friends to be

Vicki joined the speech and debate team in high school and
received a speech communications scholarship while attending

Communications and Radio/TV. She remembers hearing her college
roommate tell her mom, (after being asked what her roommate,
Vicki wanted to do when she grew up) "I think she wants
to be like Carol Brunette!" Vicki has always taken that
as one of the best compliments she has ever received!
She went on to become a speech/debate and drama classroom teacher,
leading her school's speech team to victory year after year.
