Victoria Lord is freelance publicist representing a variety of music, arts, culture, culinary and leisure clients. Running a business and a home while trying to figure out life as a newly single parent of two remarkable human beings has tested her juggling abilities. Her eight-year-old daughter Maggie helps keep it all in perspective. Sassy, spirited and funny as hell, Maggie’s shenanigans and uninhibited commentary on just about every subject under the sun provide plenty of laughs and even more moments that find Victoria saying, “Well, I never really thought about it that way."
