For me, reading is not just a way to learn; it's self-care and life changing!   I've successfully helped self-proclaimed "non-readers" start and maintain a reading habit and helped readers get out of reading slumps and have more intentional and fulfilling reading lives.

Let’s Change Your Life With Books!


Whether you've been a lifelong reader, haven't picked up a book since leaving school, only read for work, can't find a book you can get into, or think you don't have time to read - I can help you start and maintain a reading habit.

“It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish.”

S.I. Hayakawa

I'm Victoria, your new book bestie.

I live, eat, and breathe a literary lifestyle. I'm also a radiology professional, community builder, event organizer, podcaster, newsletter curator, self-care advocate, volunteer, and pizza-loving, cocktail-drinking individualist whose life revolves around my family.  

See that? I have A LOT going on, and I'm guessing you do too! So I want to help you bridge that gap between living a full and busy life to one where you're also carving out some YOU time, reading, learning new things, and having fun!
