She played on the professional WTA tour for several years and competed in the 1998 US Open in Flushing. She also worked as an outside sales representative for Pfizer Pharmaceuticals for seven years.
Through the Pivot Program, Victoria enhanced her business skills and gained experience working in a sales and marketing internship.
