What is your title/position on campus? Senior Director of Advancement, University of Utah Health
When do you feel most empowered? When I’m living the life I want to be living.
What would you consider your greatest accomplishment? My great kids!
What makes you proud to be a woman? Woman have overcome many things and have found their voice and worth. But women in many areas of the world are still struggling and I’m also proud when women are helping other women.
What advice would you go back and give to the younger version of yourself? Don’t try to do so much so soon. There is plenty of time. I think the pressure and anxiety we put on ourselves isn’t good most of the time.
If you had to describe yourself in three words what would they be, and why? Kind, curious, and compassionate. As I get older, those are increasingly the traits I find most important and continue to strive to embody.
What changes would you like to see for women in the next 10 years? That being a woman doesn’t mean that you need to think a certain way. I hope all women will be seen as complex human beings with a lot of different experiences and opinions – not just seen as our “identity” of being women.
What is the motto you like to live your life by? I will strive to live my life in tune with my soul.
The University of Utah is so lucky to have strong and empowering women like Vicky on staff. We cannot wait to see what Vicky Davison accomplishes into the years to come, and we will truly never be able to thank her enough for all the hard work, time, and dedication she puts into our University..
