In 2015, Victoria walked-on to the #1 ranked team in the nation. Despite low expectations, Victoria became a starter, playing in all 36 matches her true freshman year, and would appear in all 136 matches the team played during her four years. Victoria's volleyball career at USC consisted of a Pac-12 Conference Championship, two Pac-12 All-Academic Honorable Mentions, two seasons serving as co-captain, two USC Best Passer/Digger awards, Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week honors, and finishing 1st in the Pac-12 conference with the most total digs as a senior. Victoria finished her career with the top 5 most digs in program history.
In the spring of 2017, and as a sophomore student-athlete at USC, Victoria gave a compelling TEDxTalk on mental health in athletes. It has since garnered over 230,000 views on Youtube and launched her public speaking career where she continues to advocate for mental health and body image issues amongst student-athletes on a national level. Since graduating from USC in 2019, Victoria has been traveling the country speaking on college campuses such as Harvard, Virginia Tech, Dartmouth, and the University of Maryland.
