Victoria has worked with the CAMA family since August 2005. This was her first role as a Dietary Manager. Previous to her start at CAMA, Victoria worked as a Cook/Dietary Aide in a nursing/retirement home in Stoney Creek for 8 years.

Victoria enjoys her role as Dietary Manager, as she gets to interact with the residents and utilize her creative ideas through guiding the Dietary Aides and Cooks with meals and special events. She finds this to be the best of both worlds.

Victoria is a huge sports fan, and when she’s not working she is usually watching, playing or attending a sporting event. She enjoys being social with her friends and family. Having moved back to Burlington she is currently trying to love gardening, a process she thinks may take a while...or at least until her allergy to trees and plants goes away.
