Vicki is a Colorado native, born in Colorado Springs. She balances family, friends, and her passion for songwriting.  Her best-known songs are "Real Woman" - a sassy, body-celebrating anthem and "That Kind of Old" - a tune for bold grown ups with no regrets.

Vicki takes time and effort to craft her songs; foraging for the right words to tell the story. She believes that (generally) the best songs are not written, they are rewritten. Conversely, Vicki is a fan of "Fearless Songwriting" - a private exercise of writing quickly, without self-censoring. It cleans out dusty corners and invites fresh ideas to visit. Several "Fearless" songs have transformed into real songs. Others stay as private, quirky gifts from the song goddess. Not surprisingly, Vicki is a Gemini who isn't sure what she thinks of Astrology.

When she is not writing songs, practicing guitar, or singing, she is playing with her kiddos, taking pictures of the moon or ignoring laundry. She collects funny tweets and memes, and admires Winston Churchill's relentless affection for afternoon naps. She is rumored to have the catlike reflexes of a dim-witted ninja.
