InfoVicki has been an Oregonian since 1960. She has called many towns on the Oregon Coast and the Willamette Valley her home as her family moved often to seek work. Her family eventually landed in Reedsport, where she graduated from high school in 1974. She returned to Eugene in 1974, earning a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Oregon.
After having her children, Vicki studied court reporting at Lane Community College, starting her business in 1983. She became a certified shorthand reporter in 1990 when Oregon adopted certification standards. She continues with her reporting when the legislature is not in session.

Having come from a low-income family, Vicki thought a University education was out of the question. An inspirational high school counselor saw her potential and encouraged her to go to college. Vicki applied for and received grants, scholarships and work study to make her dream of higher education a reality. She was an early recipient of the Oregon Need Grant, now known as the Oregon Opportunity Grant.
