A senior level PR pro with nearly 15 years of experience, Vicky has a passion for examining a person, situation, product or company, and finding the most compelling way to tell its story. She is a versatile PR practitioner whether leading word-of-mouth campaigns, national media outreach, or corporate communications. Lucky for us, she brings a keen strategic sense, a good visual eye and – perhaps best of all – an unflappable demeanor to her work. 

At Buzz Monkeys, Vicky has led account teams for a number of national brands, including Harley-Davidson, Kohler Plumbing and Kohler Power. She’s also applied her arts marketing expertise to leading research and strategic planning efforts for John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Milwaukee Ballet and Milwaukee Film.

Before joining the agency, Vicky worked for six years as communications manager for the Milwaukee Art Museum and was a key team member responsible for the award-winning marketing efforts promoting the opening of the Museum’s Calatrava-designed addition in 2001.

In her free time, Vicky serves on the board of Artists Working in Education.
