Vickie was born in Atlanta, grew up in Marietta, and currently resides in Decatur, Georgia. The daughter and grand-daughter of piano tuners, her love of music and rhythm is shown in her art. She studied piano from an early age, with many musical influences -- gospel, country, rock and classical among them. A graduate of the University of Georgia, she has an ABJ with a major in film.
She is a life-long volunteer, volunteering for Habitat for Humanity (she was trained as a supervisor and has worked on as many as 15 houses) and giving historical tours of Atlanta for the Atlanta Preservation Center, are ways Vickie stays active in the city she loves. She currently gives the tour of the Fox Theater. Vickie has long been employed in the field of advertising, placing media on television, radio and cable.
