Vicki Linton, IRIS Consultant
Team Manager, Milwaukee/Jefferson/Dodge/Columbia/Green Lake/Marquette/Waushara/Fond du lac/Winnebago Regions
Vicki is grateful and feels privileged to work with people in the IRIS program and feels her life experiences have prepared her to be successful in her career in IRIS. In younger years, Vicki was very active in team sports, learning the importance of being a part of a team to achieve goals, and the importance of considering how working together and trusting others improves opportunities for personal growth and success.
She has worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant, providing hands on care to people with all different types of needs. This was a humbling experience, as people would share how difficult it was to allow others to assist them with daily tasks. Later, she lovingly cared for my grandma, as she lived out her life with Alzheimer’s, enhancing her understanding of the dynamics of being a family caregiver. She has worked in the Health Care and Social Services field for 30 years, and has truly appreciated people trusting her and allowing her into their life journey.
When she's not working, Vicki enjoys going on adventures with her family. She particularly loves to hike with her toddler grandson who is the joy of her life. They love finding and collecting bugs and stones. She is also a passionate advocate for rescue animals, particularly dogs, and enjoys cooking shows and trying new recipes.
