Victoria is a registered nurse specializing in medical-surgical nursing, home health nursing, and trauma care. She serves as Nurse Manager, Supervisor for the Long and Short Term Rehabilitation Unit & Hospice Admission Nurse at the Visiting Nurse Service of New York.

Founded in 1893, the Visiting Nurse Service of New York is the largest not-for-profit home- and community-based health care organization in the United States, serving the five boroughs of New York City, as well as Nassau, Suffolk, and Westchester Counties. Its mission is “to improve the health and well-being of people through high-quality, cost effective healthcare in the home and community.”
Attributing her success to being a compassionate nurse, Victoria’s vision, commitment to excellence, drive for success, and ability to provide quality care are what motivate her at the start of each day.
As a child, she admired her aunt, a public health nurse on the island. She watched how happy she was taking care of ill patients and nursing them back to health. After she would finish taking care of a patient, they would say “God bless you nurse” and her aunt would have a huge smile on her face.
Deciding to go down that same path, Victoria obtained her Associate’s Degree in Nursing from Dade Medical College in 2013. Years later, in 2019, she earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Monroe College where she was a member of the Honor Society.
