Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Invertir en la educación. En Sacramento, lucharé para invertir en la educación en todos los niveles, desde la educación temprana hasta la educación superior, para preparar a los estudiantes para ser parte de la fuerza laboral de hoy.
  • Proteger nuestro medio ambiente. Lucharé por disminuir también el uso del petróleo, y las emisiones que resultan del gas de efecto invernadero, a un 50 % para el 2030.
  • Extender la oportunidad económica y la vivienda asequible. Estamos en plena crisis de vivienda que debemos abordar. Ampliar las oportunidades económicas, los sistemas de transporte y las opciones de vivienda es una necesidad urgente en nuestro distri

Biografía

Vicki has been working with Silicon Valley leaders for nearly 25 years to foster innovation and improve her community.

AN INNOVATIVE AND EXPERIENCED LEADER
A leading patent attorney in Palo Alto, Vicki represents many of the Valley’s top innovators in matters involving new technologies and breakthrough life science inventions. Vicki’s clients have included a Nobel laureate, Fortune 500 companies, start-ups, and a low-income custodian whom she represented pro bono in an ADA and employment case. Among other honors, California Law Business selected Vicki in 2002 as one of the state’s Top 20 Lawyers Under 40.

Vicki’s passion for providing equal opportunity for women and girls led her to help found Women’s Professional Soccer as General Counsel. Her work to give some of America’s most talented, hard-working athletes a “league of their own” provided a training ground for many members of the US women’s national team who went on to win the 2015 World Cup.

FOCUSED ON COMMUNITY
As a community leader, Vicki has served as President and more than a dozen years on the Board of the Law Foundation of Silicon Valley, which provides access to justice in underserved communities and fights poverty. The Law Foundation provides free legal services to low-income clients - such as foster youth and victims of predatory lending - through its five programs: Fair Housing, Mental Health Advocacy, Public Interest Law Firm, Legal Advocates for Children & Youth, and Health Legal Services.

As the daughter of two teachers, Vicki has a natural love of teaching and learning. That passion led her to serve as an Adjunct Professor at both UC Hastings College of the Law and Santa Clara University School of Law.

Additionally, Vicki currently serves on the Alzheimer’s Association Fund Development Committee for the Northern California and Northern Nevada chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.

BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER
Both the International Trade Commission and the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California have appointed Vicki to their mediation panels. Her work brokering compromises on complex technology issues led Vicki to be named on the inaugural list of the world’s leading technology neutrals by the Silicon Valley Arbitration and Mediation Center, which she now serves as a Director.
