As a former member of Belle Reve’s Board of Directors, Vicki has served as Executive Director since 1999. Responsible for Belle Reve’s vision and direction, Vicki has taken Belle Reve out of thousands of dollars of debt and dramatically increased Belle Reve’s available funding. Vicki has a Master’s Degree and has used her background and training to run Belle Reve as a responsible nonprofit. Under her direction, Belle Reve has consistently received superior ratings from its monitoring agencies; and has been honored with a Certificate of Merit, for Outstanding Service from the City of New Orleans. In Year 2008, Vicki received a special commendation, from the United States Department of State, for serving as a model for visiting International HIV/AIDS dignitaries and research groups. Previously, the Forum for Equality honored Vicki with an Acclaim Award for her work in the HIV/AIDS community. Vicki is on the ground floor of a lobbying organization, called the Louisiana AIDS Action Network (LAAN), founded to unite and protect the interests of persons with AIDS, across the state. Additionally, Vicki represents Belle Reve as the first HIV/AIDS Adult Residentail Care Faciliy, licensed by the LA State Department of Health and Hospitals. It is Vicki’s vision that all AIDS service organizations work together, to create a coordinated effort to serve the HIV/AIDS community, with each organization providing different services and strengths. Vicki is completely committed to Belle Reve’s Mission; and as the increased longevity of HIV/AIDS-infected persons is changing the needs of the HIV/AIDS population, Vicki plans to keep Belle Reve current, throughout any and all changes. Those who know her rightly say that it is impossible to keep her down. Her endless optimism, action, and faith are noteworthy and contagious.
