Director of Community Relations & Communications

Vikki brings more than 20 years of award-winning public relations and communications experience to Assisting Hands. She has worked with B2B and B2C clients delivering impactful, strategic communications. She excels at executing a business visions and developing meaningful connections.

For Vikki, home care is very personal. Her mom received more than three years of in-home care while she worked through numerous health challenges. “Without professional caregivers, I would not have been able to honor my mom’s wishes and keep her at home. The aides enabled me to rest easier and continue working, knowing she was being looked after.”

Nothing makes Vikki happier than to spend time with family and friends. She is a perpetual Disney nerd and dreams of retirement seeing the world from the balcony of a cruise ship.
