Victoria is the Clinical Case Manager at Roman’s House Extended Transitional Housing Program. She is originally from a small town in Massachusetts, but has recently settled in D.C. with her spouse and two cats. Prior to coming to SMYAL, Victoria was a home-based therapist in Michigan, working with children aged 6-17 with severe mental health needs. She has also worked within a public charter school, with refugees participating in a job-readiness program, and on a college campus doing violence prevention and education. 

She believes strongly in client-oriented services and that everyone should have access to the opportunities and support that they need to succeed. Victoria is also passionate about self-improvement and continuing to learn throughout your life. 

When she is not at SMYAL Victoria spends her time reading YA novels, exploring new places around D.C., trying out new vegan recipes, and pointing out every dog that she sees.
