Victoria shaped the development of the phlebotomy course while pursuing a B.S. in Health and Exercise Science at Wake Forest University, working in a busy hospital setting at Centra Health in Lynchburg. She applied these skills within several research projects at the Health and Exercise Science department at Wake Forest, and in her senior year became a research study lab coordinator, training less experienced lab workers and handling over 400 specimens. This experience shaped her career path, and after graduating in 2019, she moved to the business side of the health care world with CareAllies, a Nashville-based management company for health insurers, working daily with physicians and other clinical staff to help close measures and bring quality care to the Medicare population.
