Victoria is absolutely elated to be a part of the Grace Episcopal Church worship team. Victoria grew up on the stage, starting at the age of three, in the Royal Performing Ballet and Performing Arts Conservatory in Dublin, Ireland. When she moved to Florida, Ocala Civic Theatre was the perfect place to nourish and grow her love of theatre performance. Some of her favorite roles include Annie in Annie, Sgt. Sarah Brown in Guys and Dolls, Hodel in Fiddler on the Roof, Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, Elle Woods in Legally Blonde, and Wendy in Peter Pan. She studied vocal performance at the University of South Florida and enjoys bringing music and an appreciation of the performing arts to her community and beyond. Victoria has had the privilege of representing Florida by singing all over the world from Italy to Ireland to California. To keep her passion for music thriving, Victoria is a Resident Artist with the Central Florida Lyric Opera, often performing in The Villages, and is also a proud member of The Brick City Cabaret with our other worship team members Jessica, Jason, and Adam.
Victoria is no stranger to Grace Episcopal as she already knew Fr. Jonathan and the whole French family. When Victoria was in high school, in Vanguard’s IB program, she was on the soccer team with Eliana French and used to refer to Fr. Jonathan as ‘Coach’! She admits that she is not a star athlete, but with encouragement from Coach French and her amazing team, Victoria had a fantastic time on the squad.
In her professional life, Victoria is currently a Licensed Florida Realtor with Homes to Ranches Realty, Inc in Ocala and also has her own marketing company that specializes in social media management, digital advertising, email advertising, and branded copy writing. She would like to give a special 'thank you' everyone at Grace for being so kind and welcoming and is excited to bring the congregation closer to God through music.
