Victory is a long-time member of the EJGH staff, starting off as a volunteer in May of 1998. Joining as a full-time staff assistant in July of that same year, Victory quickly rose to supervisor and director roles by 2006.

With flood waters rapidly rising higher than expected following historic rain fall this past Friday, Ochsner Medical Center in Baton Rouge was looking for assistance in evacuating patients from their rooms to safer grounds in the New Orleans area.
