Born in England in 1968, Victoria graduated from the QLD Conservatorium in 1992 with a Bachelor of Music in Voice. After completing an award-winning thesis, she lectured, taught and performed for 26 years. More recently her work evolved to incorporate vocal therapy which in turn led her to complete a Masters of Counselling in 2013. Aside to this, her life has been strongly shaped by a longstanding battle with mental illness something she refers to as Wobbliness. Undiagnosed and largely unsupported for many years, it left her feeling desperately misunderstood, deeply isolated and altogether different from the ‘Normal People’.
In 2010, after a long recovery process, Victoria completed her memoir Wobbly: One Woman’s Journey to Onward and Upward which was published shortly after. In 2011 the book earned itself The Caleb Award for best memoir.
