Stormo is currently a Senior Associate. She was formerly the full-time Manager for Organizational Assessment Services with Margolis Healy where her responsibilities included managing and conducting public safety management studies; arming support (also known as lethal and less-than lethal force options) and related services; Clery Act and Title IX assessments; and emergency management related services. Vicky has more than 35 years of law enforcement experience and has been with Margolis Healy since 2008 as an Associate.

Immediately prior to joining Margolis Healy full time in 2014, Vicky served as a deputy chief of police and consultant for Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, Oregon. She was hired to help the public safety department transition into a police department from 2010 to 2014.

From 1999 to 2008, Vicky served as the Chief of Police at the University of Washington (UW) in Seattle. The University of Washington Police Department (UWPD) was a fully accredited law enforcement agency, comprised of 55 commissioned officers that oversaw 680 acres with a service population of 67,000 people. She also increased the number of women at the UWPD to 24%, doubling the national average. As Chief of Police at UW, Vicky was responsible for addressing many challenges including the management of: 1) activism in the Northwest that led to the WTO riots and arson of the Urban Horticulture Center; 2) dignitary protection; 3) football games with 74,000 Husky fans; 4) a top 10 Medical Center and Health Sciences department; and 5) a major research institution.

Before joining the University of Washington, Vicky was a lieutenant with the Albuquerque Police Department, retiring in 1999. While in Albuquerque, she worked in many facets of the department, including patrol, detectives, civil litigation, operations review, watch commander, communications center commander, and recruiting and selection. During her tenure, she was credited with increasing the number of women applicants from 8% to 25% while serving as the Recruitment and Selection commander and has spoken nationally about the strategy used to attract women along with the Institute for Women in Trades, Technology and Sciences (IWITTS).

Vicky has received several honors throughout her law enforcement career. She was the Officer of the Month in her rookie year and was featured on Paul Harvey for solving a series of armed robberies utilizing computers when computer technology was new to law enforcement. She received the New Mexico Commission on the Status of Women Trailblazer award and the YWCA Woman on the Move award. She also received the Breaking the Glass Ceiling award from the National Center for Women and Policing.
