Welcome! I’m Victoria Worch and this is my blog. At Cafevic, I share advice and reflections on what I’ve learned from my own personal journey working in higher education. My recent work is on my experience of becoming of mom of twins after having my son. How my own career shifted from advising student leaders to academic advising. How I learned to best support transfer students, and that finding my way to community leadership development made all the difference.
I’m fueled by helping others find their way, watching my kids play soccer, tea, & time at the coast with my family.
