Victoria is currently the Associate Artistic Director at Mosaic Theater Company of DC, a company committed to making transformational, socially-relevant art, and to building a fusion community to address some of the most pressing issues of our times. She has also had the distinct privilege of serving on the national team for the Creative Forces: NEA Military Healing Arts Network - a partnership of the National Endowment for the Arts and the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs dedicated to meeting the special needs of military patients and veterans with traumatic brain injury and psychological health conditions through the provision of creative arts therapy. Prior to this, Victoria served at the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, the official arts agency for the District of Columbia. In this capacity she worked to develop and articulate the Commission’s policy agenda and priorities and to formulate strategies that create opportunities for the Commission to advance these priorities. Victoria has also worked with Americans for the Arts Action Fund where she spearheaded the national ArtsVote2012 campaign - a national initiative geared towards ensuring that the arts impact federal elections with a presence at both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions. 

Victoria is an artist in her own right and has worked at many theatres including the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Studio Theatre, Arena Stage, Women's Project Theater, and LaMaMa in NYC. She is also an associate member of the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society.
