This month’s employee spotlight is shining on Victoria “Vicki” Keiper, Assistant Director of Residential Services. Vicki was hired in 2010 by Barbie Railey to be the Residential Coordinator. She held that position until her recent promotion to Assistant Director. Vicki has proven herself to be a wonderful assistant, trainer, mentor, and friend to staff and residents. She adores our residents and they love her!

Vicki’s favorite Stewart Home & School memory was the day she interviewed and was taken to observe East Down. She loved all of the guys, but Kenny won her over in just a few minutes and still has her heart to this day!

Vicki feels that the biggest change she has seen since coming to Stewart Home & School has been with building updates – Manor Hall porch, Valley View entrance, etc., and progress in the area of technology – better walkie talkies, etc. Vicki is quick to respond that the love the staff has for our students has been consistent since the day she started here.

In her free time, Vicki loves to hang out with her husband, Ryan, and their kids (ALL with 4 legs). She is obsessed with the M.A.S.H. series and owns two copies of every episode.

Vicki says she doesn’t know what she would have done if she hadn’t come to work at SHS – stating that this is what she really wanted to do and adding that this is actually the perfect job for her. We are so glad and so fortunate that Vicki’s “journey” led her to Stewart Home & School and gave her a place to call home! It is a pleasure to honor Vicki today for her love and devotion to our students and I consider it a pleasure to work with her every day.

    I love this series. It gives faces to names and let’s you learn about staff that are not always visible to those who live out of town. I know you have to love the residents to be a good employee. Obviously, she has a great deal of love to give! I think y’all made a good choice in spotlighting Vicki!
