Vicky was born and raised on Vancouver Island before making the move to Ontario to obtain her BES (Bachelor of Environment & Business) at the University of Waterloo. She developed her research and data analysis skills through undergraduate coursework and projects, and co-ops.
For her capstone project, Vicky measured the impact of indoor air quality on employee performance and produced a series of environmental performance reports illustrating the relationship between air quality and employee performance metrics. During her co-op program she worked as a junior economist at Industry Canada in Ottawa, policy analyst at the Ministry of Research Innovation and Science in Toronto, and a data analyst at Suncor Energy in Oakville.
When Vicky moved back to British Columbia in May 2018 her official reason was to be close to family but really it was because she missed the ocean. She enjoys going on hikes, raising her brand new puppy and hanging out by large bodies of water – ideally all at the same time.
