Victoria was born and raised in St. John’s. She is an alumna of Memorial University. She has always been fascinated by other cultures, so working with international students was the perfect career choice. She has enjoyed meeting so many interesting people during her career and believes everyone has an important story to tell. She has a passion for food. She likes cooking (although, admittedly, she’s not very good at it). She mostly enjoys trying new foods that other people cook, especially spicy ones!

Victoria has been teaching with Memorial’s English as a Second Language program since 2003. Since that time, she has had a variety of roles in the department, from orientation coordinator to curriculum development. Her favorite role is most certainly teaching. She usually teaches in the 12-week intensive program but has taught pronunciation, speaking/listening classes, English Language Summer School, and English for computer and environmental engineers.
