Who Am I?

“The arts have been part of my life since I was a small child when I began dancing lessons at the age of 4. Moving into the world of musical theatre, I have continued to pursue this passion throughout my life but sadly never had the courage to venture into the professional world. 

After working as a primary school teacher for several years, I decided to take a step back from classroom teaching in order to pursue my life-long love for the arts, and I now love that I work in a space with like-minded, passionate, creative people where I am able to explore my interests and be a part of a forward thinking, diverse, inclusive arts organisation.

In my free time, I remain an amateur musical theatre performer, focusing these days mostly on singing and acting with a bit of dance thrown in and I have performed with various local musical theatre societies, playing a wide range of roles over the years. I also enjoy visiting the theatre, seeing live music and dance and attending festivals as well as travelling, reading, history and fitness”

Career History

After many years of working in a variety of office environments, Victoria retrained firstly as a nursery nurse, then a teaching assistant, eventually enrolling in the Graduate Teacher Programme, leading to obtaining qualified teacher status in 2013. Having worked as a primary teacher in educational establishments ever since, Victoria made the move to the higher education arts sector when she took up her first position at NSCD in June 2021.
