She possesses more than 30 years of long-term care experience either as a nurse or pharmacist. Her work experience includes positions in general staffing, management, and academia. Her desire to improve medication management in long-term care led her to graduate school to gain the skills necessary to conduct research and suggest change for improvement. Victoria’s primary training was in human factors engineering and work systems perspectives. Her graduate research interests included identifying and exploring the contributing factors to sub-optimal medication management in the nursing home setting, specifically medication reconciliation when individuals are transferred from a hospital to a nursing home.
