Episode 47: Victoria Lane, Finding Passion and Purpose, Casting for Recovery


Victoria Lane was born and raised in Syracuse, NY, where she is  currently employed by Syracuse University as a book designer at SU Press. Until she was about 35 or so, she spent every summer at my family’s summer home on Otisco Lake, where she developed a love of fishing and creating art work. Victoria  loves to fish and paint (mostly painting trout and other freshwater fish; go figure). She is  also a calligrapher and has done commissions for wedding invitations, certificates, poetry, etc. She finds it most enjoyable and rewarding. Right now Victoria is  looking forward to retirement in about 6 mos. when she  hopes to be able to do some travelling; both domestic and international. Of course that is all very much up in the air at this point. Victoria maintains a positive outlook and also looks forward to more volunteer work with Casting for Recovery.  She has a daughter and sister whom she  loves dearly and tries  to spend as much time with as possible. Victoria is looking forward to retirement as a new chapter in my life.
