Victoria is a wife, mother, inspirational writer, and hospital chaplain. She is the mother of three teen-age children enrolled in Catholic schools. Her ever-faithful, supportive husband of over 20 years has demonstrated the love of Christ to her by believing in her and her vocation when no one else did.

Through her years in ministry formation, much of Victoria’s traditional Catholic theology was challenged. In her memoir Women as Spiritual Leaders Victoria shares the inner processing of her soul. Victoria found her ultimate calling to be “A Light of Hope in the Midst of Darkness.” Much of her journey addresses the confusion apparent in the Roman Catholic Church regarding the role of women in the Catholic Church. The oil painting below is a piece of artwork she completed in 2016 after eight years of losses, doubts, and questions.
