Vicky frequently subs for TE Wolfe on A Word in Edgewise.

Raised in Edinburgh, Scotland, where her education included Latin and Greek but not typing or economics, Vicky immigrated to the U.S. in 1980, landing in Los Angeles, where she spent the next 33 years. She moved to Nevada City in the summer of 2013, vowing never to leave this piece of heaven. As a school psychologist in the local high school district, Vicky is privileged to hang out with teenagers every day, which keeps her on her toes physically, emotionally and mentally. This is immensely more satisfying to her than her brief career as a lawyer in Britain.

Besides having music interests as diverse as classic rock, folk and classical, Vicky is a word person. She loves reading anything and everything. She is a Scrabble fanatic, and enjoys watching intensely intellectual quiz games where she will maybe get three questions right in a 30 minute show. On the other hand, she was a “Jeopardy!” champion for two glorious nights at the end of 2005.

Vicky has been part of the KVMR community since 2006, when she first began listening online, and is delighted to be participating more fully now she is a local resident. She has two grown sons, who live in New York City and Memphis, TN respectively.
