She was Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs from 2013 to 2017 under President Obama, as well as a State Department Spokeswoman under Hillary Clinton.

Prior to these roles Victoria was a Special Envoy and Chief Negotiator on the Treaty on Conventional Arms Control in Europe from 2010-2011, and was also Vice President Cheney’s Deputy National Security Advisor from 2003-2005. In her capacity as ambassador, she has completed assignments for the U.S. State Department in a number of countries, including Russia, China, and Mongolia. Victoria was the lead ambassador in the U.S. response to the Ukrainian Crisis, and was praised by the likes of Senator John McCain for her work. She has also served two tours at NATO in Brussels.

Victoria is currently CEO of the Center for a New American Security, an independent, bipartisan think-tank which aims to develop ‘strong, pragmatic, and principled national security and defence policies.’ Victoria is also the Brady-Johnson distinguished practitioner in the Yale University’s Grand Strategy Program, and is a member of the board of directors for the National Endowment for Democracy.
