Vici Wolff, Director of Development Services
After spending two decades as a healthcare administrator and certified medical practice executive, Vici decided to semi-retire to a life of more balance and meaning. While volunteering for two nonprofits, she became hooked. “There comes a time when you begin focusing less on yourself and more on giving back and for me, philanthropy and nonprofit work are the perfect vehicles. I appreciate the opportunity to use my knowledge, skills and experience to make the world a better place in whatever way that I can.” With a parochial school background, bachelors in business management, and masters in public administration she sees herself as a lifelong learner and is happy to be in an educational setting, especially one as beautiful as this.
