Victoria was born in 1989 in San Antonio, Texas. She then moved to Columbus, Ohio where she received a B.S. in chemistry from the Ohio State University. While at OSU, Victoria worked under Anita Mattson. While in the Mattson group, Victoria studied hydrogen bond donor catalysts and their ability to facilitate ring-opening of strained systems under nucleophilic additions. In Fall of 2012, Victoria joined the Krische group where she hopes to develop new synthetic methodologies.
