After Victoria’s childhood dream of becoming a dancer was curtailed due to injury, she decided to focus her career on the other love of her life – organising!
She retrained to gain her HND in Administrative and Secretarial Procedures and Victoria had various operational and assistant roles which included working with corporate banks, high-net-worth individuals and even a famous face or two! Her skillset and thoroughness behind the scenes make her the perfect person to undertake the Operations Assistant role joining Bluetree in January 2021. Her favourite moments are spent with her two young sons; usually caked in mud on various sidelines or on a woodland walk in Surrey!
