Vicki holds degrees in music performance, languages and ethnomusicology. She has worked in all three levels of government in Australia, including 3 years as a social planner in local government, in social policy areas such as housing, gaming, employment, the arts, disaster recovery and Indigenous affairs. She has published in housing and Indigenous policy, as well as in arts-based community development. In addition to her experience in government, she has also worked in a variety of community development roles in Australia and mainland Southeast Asia since the early 1990s.
