Meet The Queen Of Green
Victoria, like other Inner-City kids, was subject to encompassing profiling of low expectations, which seemed to gain credence with her initial struggle to pass through high school successfully.
With a G.P.A. of merely 1.69, one could imagine how easy it would be to write her off. But like every adversity she would go on to overcome, it started with overcoming that very first one. She soon found herself admitted to Lincoln University in Missouri.
Victoria had always taken less interest in vocations that a young person in her peer group or social strata would dream of. She had little interest in playing the doctor, the nurse, the pilot, the movie star, or many other vivid dreams that defined most childhood formative years.
Her dream was simple, “I want to do more than be a professional. I want to do something that will change the world”.
Choosing to get a degree in Environmental Sciences was an inevitable effect of this understanding. She became one of the twenty-six students selected across the country to receive ‘The Nuclear Security Administration fellowship, cohort class 1, which funded her higher education at Drexel University, in Philadelphia.
There, she obtained her Master’s Degree in the Environmental Sciences – focusing on toxicology and ecology.
Under the employ of the Education Advance Alliance Inc. as an assistant science teacher at the time, Victoria actively mentored students in the greater Philadelphia area on the importance of the S.T.E.M. field. This also helped her hone her skills as a public speaker and educator in government and social settings.
Throughout her career Victoria has traveled nationally and internationally focusing on research and sustainable innovation. Over her academic career, Victoria’s research included the Phytoremediation of EPA SUPERFUND sites, Wastewater remediation at Los Alamos National Laboratory of New Mexico, and a host of other water and soil quality . In 2011, Naturally Urban Environmental , Inc was born, Sustainable Development and Environmental Consulting firm focuse in real estate.
