Professional background

Victoria has a master's degree in communication from the University of Missouri-St. Louis and a bachelor of journalism degree from the Missouri School of Journalism here at MU. She has been a professional editor since 1993 and has edited and written publications in a variety of fields, including medicine and engineering. When editing extension publications, Victoria's goal is to ensure that they flow logically and are written in language that the target audience can easily grasp. Her motto is "Strive for eloquence," and she once described her job as that of a whittler, chipping away at unneeded words until the core of what the author is trying to convey is clear.
