Victoria received certification in Lymphedema Management in 2005, and in 2007, she successfully completed certification through the Lymphedema Association of North America (LANA). In 2011, Victoria attended an advanced lymphedema course at the world-renowned Foeldi Clinic in Germany and intends to return in 2018.

Victoria is passionate about sharing her knowledge and experience with patients, family members, and healthcare professionals.

By decreasing swelling, patients benefit from decreased pain and improved range of motion, ADLs and mobility.
