Vicki and her husband Sean moved to the Hood River Valley from San Diego for the abundance of outdoor activities, a more relaxed lifestyle and the scenic beauty. Sean is a retired Naval Aviator and is enjoying a second career in the aviation field at Insitu. Their three adult children visit as often as they can, and enjoy all that the Gorge has to offer. Having grown up in a farming community in Imperial Valley, California, Vicki enjoys the beauty and bounty of the orchards and vineyards.
Vicki began her professional career in the nutrition and health education field after graduating with a degree in Food Science and Nutrition from San Diego State University. She was very involved in community development and planning in the Rancho San Diego community, volunteering with many organizations. She served as a board member of the East County Family YMCA in San Diego County for many years. In 2006, Vicki transitioned to a successful career in major gift fundraising for international ministries and mission agencies. Her experience ranges from helping to raise funds for homes for women and children rescued out of human trafficking, providing schools in remote African communities, building and sustaining healthcare clinics and hospitals throughout the world, treatment and care for people living with leprosy and clean water and sanitation for communities in some of the poorest places on earth.
After moving to the Gorge she wanted to become involved in the community and share her love for the Gorge in her work. “It has been a privilege to service others through global missions and now I would love to serve the people where I live. What a joy it is to help people attain their goals in life.”
“When my husband and I moved to the Gorge we greatly appreciated the expertise and excellence service of Realtor Bill Irving and the Copper West Team – they helped make it a seamless transition for us. My experience with Copper West as a buyer made it no question where I would work as a Realtor. I want to help others as we were helped. For most of us, our home is our single largest investment in life. I would consider it a privilege to help you find the perfect home or property whether it is your first home, retirement home or anything in between.”
In her free time Vicki enjoys long walks near their home in the Upper Hood River Valley with their dog Rita, hiking, fly fishing, skiing and cooking.
