Born and raised in Phoenix, AZ, Victoria began studying music in 3rd grade in her elementary school choir and knew early on that music and performing were her passions. In 4th grade, she picked up the cello as well and immediately fell in love. For High School, she attended a college-prep charter school called Arizona School for the Arts, where she furthered her study in Voice and Cello and began to get familiar with Piano and Orchestral Conducting. Victoria later went on to get a Bachelor of Music degree in Voice Performance from the University of Arizona and a Master of Music degree in Voice Performance from the University of Minnesota.
Professionally, Victoria is an active performer and is rapidly establishing herself as a premier interpreter of the lyric coloratura repertoire. She made her professional debut with Opera Southwest, covering the role of Amenaide in their 2016 production of Rossini’s Tancredi. Her recent operatic appearances include La Fée in Viardot's "La Cendrillon," Donna Anna in Mozart's "Don Giovanni," Venus in the world premier of Michael Polo's "Pluto," Gretel in Humperdinck’s "Hänsel und Gretel," Lucia in Donizetti's "Lucia di Lammermoor," Annina in Strauss II's "Eine Nacht in Venedig," Donna Elvira in Mozart's "Don Giovanni," Susanna in Mozart’s "Le Nozze di Figaro," Esmeralda in Smetana’s "The Bartered Bride," and Lauretta in Puccini’s "Gianni Schicchi." Her oratorio credits include Mendelssohn’s Psalm 42, Brahm's Ein Deutsches Requiem, Faure's Requiem, and Sato’s Requiem Pacis. She has also appeared in Musical Theater productions, such as Hope Hartcourt in Porter's "Anything Goes."
When Victoria isn't teaching or singing classically, you can find her belting rock and pop tunes at Wine Tasting Rooms in Woodinville, WA, singing Karaoke with friends, snuggling with her cat, Claudia, while drinking coffee or tea, trying NOT to kill her plants, traveling and exploring new things, and focusing on her overall health and wellness.
