Victoria comes from a strong medical background in an industry that is not only highly regulated but also driven by innovation. She is always looking for ways to save more lives by increasing the number of viable organs and also opportunities to improve the quality of life by utilizing tissue in ways that have never before been imagined.
Saving and improving lives is a passion that is deeply ingrained in Victoria. In her experience, we remove the parts that are still good and we transplant them in place of aged, damaged, or diseased parts so that the patient can go back to living a full life doing the things that they enjoy. It is like many other disciplines in which we are using science and technology to improve humans. She supports transhumanism because she supports maximizing the mental and physical characteristics of humans to minimize diseases, degeneration, and death.
