Vicki Rich, Board Member
Vicki is a Registered Nurse, Lactation Consultant, Childbirth Educator, and Doula. Following in the footsteps of her mother and Godmother, she decided at age 10 that she wanted to be a nurse working with mothers and babies. She loves helping new families create a tight bond from birth on. She is United Way’s longest-serving board member, having been on the board for over 20 years. Her motivation to support United Way comes from a strong desire to make life better for one’s neighbors. “There are not many of us who can get through life without needing a little help at some point. It feels really good to be on the board of an agency that can provide that help.”
Vicki is an avid power walker, African dance enthusiast, and 100% Vermonter. She really enjoys three of Vermont’s six seasons: late spring, summer, and early fall. She would enjoy less of winter, stick season and mud season.
She lives in Hyde Park with her husband. She has four grown children and eight grandchildren. According to one of her grandchildren, she is “a zesty Grandma.”
