Peripatetic (but not a dilettante):
The child of teachers who did educational exchanges, Victoria was born in the Pacific Northwest (the same family home is still there), lived in Mexico City as a child, went to secondary school in the Highlands of Scotland, and spent her summers in Chicago, with the exception of a summer in Zimbabwe and in China, respectively. As an adult, Victoria won a scholarship to spend a year of her undergraduate degree in London (returning in 2002 to live there again); she worked for several years in New York City, several years in Los Angeles, and for a brief period in Berlin, before finally moving to Chamonix – “I had to move to France to pursue the American dream.”
