Victoria helps with all aspects of planning and producing the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival, from coordinating High School Student Day to proofreading the program. If you call with a question as the Festival draws near, chances are you’ll talk to Victoria. 

Victoria graduated summa cum laude from Drew University with honors in English and Creative Writing. A selection from her thesis, “The Representations, Reception and Reputation of Jane Austen in Women’s Literary Culture,” was awarded an Honorable Mention by the New Jersey Women's and Gender Studies Consortium in 2013, and her essay “Garden State” was published in the anthology Eat Pray Love Made Me Do It (Riverhead Books, 2016). She has been a featured writer at Arts by the People’s The Platform series and Montclair State University’s Live Lit series and is creator and host of the Perennials Podcast.

Victoria loves tea, road trips, yoga and trees.
