Biography:

Vicki is a communications professional with two decades of media experience. She is currently working on the Social Media to Enhance Indigenous Tobacco Control research project. The project uses her experience in the social media sphere to increase social media capacity among partnering Aboriginal community-controlled health services. 

Vicki has lived in Darwin for almost a decade. During that time she has developed a sincere passion and curiosity for cross-cultural communication between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people in the Northern Territory. She worked for ABC Radio across the country for 20 years and now hopes her communications experience can translate to improving cross cultural health messages in the NT.
