Vicki lives in a small, rural community in south central BC with her husband Rodger. She and a group of friends, neighbours & relatives created a Microboard for her nephew Jimmy in 2013. They struggled for years to bring him back to the rural community where he grew up, and to gain more control over his support. Now Jimmy & his mother live right next door. She is very grateful to the role that Vela played in making this possible. She was happy to put her name forward as a director so she can give back to Vela in their service to families. Vicki is retired from her profession as a software developer. She was a school trustee for 6 years, and is currently the Area Director for West Boundary in the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary.
