Here's the short version:
Here's the longer version:
After spending years as a registered interior designer, Vikki began to write. While writing for periodicals, Vikki found herself on assignment interviewing publishers in Colorado Springs. It wasn’t long before the natural beauty of Colorado captured her heart. After moving to Colorado, Vikki worked with nonprofits. However, she soon realized she needed more autonomy in her work. Vikki started her own business as a nonprofit consultant and certified grants specialist. She has helped nonprofits across the U.S. to receive millions of dollars for their missions around the globe. Yet, she realized doing one thing wouldn’t satisfy her for long.
Vikki became a Work Quilter™ combining her many passions to create multiple income streams. She started speaking and teaching adults on myriad and diverse topics around her knowledge, skills and passions. She's taught and spoken on Creative Writing, Design for Heart and Home, Fundraising Fundamentals, Suburban Homesteading, Permaculture, How to Get What You Really Want, and of course, Work Quilting. Two words that continually appear on instructor and speaker feedback forms are "engaging" and "knowledgeable."
Not surprisingly, Vikki's favorite genre is mystery. Incorporating her love of suburban homesteading, or as some call it, backyard farming, Vikki's first fiction book was Chicken Culprit.
You'll most often find Vikki hiking with her dog, outside gardening, traveling abroad, house or pet sitting, or writing her next book.
She loves connecting with others and welcomes hearing from you. You can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
