Vicki co-led the Ball Foundation's story project for personal transformation as part of the organization's strategy for bringing systemic change to school districts. Recently, she spent two months in India at a school awarded the Peace Education Prize by UNESCO and the Hope of Humanity Award by the Dalai Lama in order to research their methods for teaching students how to become caring citizens of the world. Vicki has a B.A. from UCLA and a Ph.D. in Education and Positive Psychology from Claremont Graduate University where she studied under the guidance of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi.
