While at NMU she worked in Alec Lindsay's genetics lab and majored in Biology. After graduating in 2007 she went to the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine (CCLCM) in Cleveland, Ohio. During her time there, she completed a Doris Duke Fellowship where she studied the effect of different methods of contraception on adolescent pregnancy.  In 2012 she graduated from CCLCM and began residency in Boston at the Harvard Affiliated Emergency Medicine Residency (HAEMR). Viktoria is currently living in Boston with her husband Sam (also an NMU alum!).

Viktoria recently visited NMU and shared her experiences of medical school and residency at a meeting with NMU pre-med students.
