VICTORIA KNAPP is a native Pasadenan who moved with her husband and two young sons to Altadena in 2011 in order to live in a quieter, smaller community that would allow for more hands on community involvement. She is a member of the Altadena Chamber of Commerce and has actively sought to meet and connect with as many local small business owners as possible.
She holds an MA in Industrial Organization Psychology and her career, prior to becoming an at-home parent, was in the staffing industry. She was the Regional Vice President of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties for an accounting, finance and office administrative staffing firm, and ran the highest revenue generating and most profitable region in the country. She was awarded the prestigious RVP of the Year award for her exemplary performance and also served as a member of the executive committee. She transitioned from that role into a national role as VP of Operations, reporting directly to the COO and operated as his Chief of Staff. In her progressively responsible roles, she was responsible for answering questions, connecting employees with the right department to help them with any issues they were having, and engaging with clients to ensure they were provided the highest level of customer service.
Victoria looks forward to contributing to the greater Altadena community, especially in the areas of education, safety, small business involvement, and community relations.
