With 20 years in the Performing Arts — from Broadway to comedy clubs, landmark films to high-profile television — Victoria brings uncommon insights to help individuals and organizations embrace uncertainty, distinguish their work and achieve sustainable growth.

Her show business credits include: a cameo on Sex & The City, 27 television commercials including a Super Bowl spot, NHK Japan’s documentary with Harvey Keitel and Robert DeNiro, a film “Bessie” directed by Academy Award winner D.A. Pennebaker, HBO’s Workspace Theater, Caroline’s on Broadway, and representation by the manager for Billy Crystal and the late Robin Williams.

Victoria also conceived and produced the documentary film, “Muppet Guys Talking” about the visionary leadership style of Jim Henson: how a culture of innovation, risk taking, hard work, and playfulness produced one of the most successful creative endeavors in history. The film premiered at SXSW with critical acclaim from The Hollywood Reporter, Variety, BBC, Los Angeles Times, and ABC Good Morning America. 

A graduate of Stanford University and an inductee into the Speaker Hall of Fame, Victoria is also the founder of a complete suite of online learning experiences and live workshops proven to help people Risk Forward® and knock their presentations out of the park – on stage, in meetings, in virtual presentations…and in life.
