Vicki Robertson- Campaign Coordinator

Vicki began working at UWDPC in 2008. She later resumed her education and received a Bachelor’s degree from Averett University in 2011. Outside of UW, Vicki fills her time with community events and activities that exercise her mind, body and soul. Her favorite pastime challenges both mind and body as she learns the latest line dances as a participant in the Southside Urban Line Dance class.  If her schedule allows, she rejuvenates with step aerobics at the YMCA.Then once a month,  time is well spent with her "Yada Yada" sisters to discuss the most recent Christian novel. However, the greatest activity by far is any gathering she and her husband, Royger, can have with their children, grandchilden, family and friends.
