Although Victoria Davis was an avid writer and reader as a child, she ultimately thought she would become a meteorologist – boy was she wrong.
Soon after discovering her dislike for math and science, Victoria continued to enhance her writing skills and pursued a career in journalism. It never occurred to her she would one day work for a TV news station, but with the development of digital journalism, she loved the idea.
Victoria served as the newsroom manager at the Indianapolis Recorder Newspaper before joining the RTV6 family as a digital content producer.
She is a graduate of Ball State University where she obtained her degree in magazine journalism and professional online writing.
