Hi, I’m Victoria.
I haven’t always been a scientist. But I have always been a writer. I grew up loving and studying poetry and short prose. In college, I snuck into creative writing classes on the dime of my vocal music scholarship. I ultimately graduated with a dual BA in writing and anthropology after the music thing didn’t pan out.
The science side of me emerged when I had dire need of it—necessity being the mother of a chronically ill woman who wanted answers.
Science humbled me to the world of what might be.
I fell in love with the pursuit of knowledge, and I’m lucky to have teachers and mentors who encourage critical thinking over dead-set infallibility.
After over a decade of various nutrition pursuits—clinical practice, product creation, and teaching—I finally realized my two loves equated to the work of science writing I do today. I hope the passion I have for my work can help you share yours.
Please contact me with any questions.
I can’t wait to hear your idea.
