Don't be fooled by the grim-faced picture. It was the only unblinking one. For me, words are worth a thousand pictures. I'm looking forward to saying hi to all of you.

Meet Vicki Broadrick

In 2000, Vicki closed her private practice as a marriage and family therapist and moved to a tiny town in the San Bernardino mountains. She’d been coming up to these mountains since she was six months old. Her great grandparents were one of the first logging families there.


Vicki is teaches Eartly Childhood Education for the certificate program at UCLA extension. She’s also working on a book of exciting essays in my class about:

  • Internet dating as a senior

  • Escaping wildfires

  • Escaping snowstorms

  • Escaping black bears, coyotes, mountain lions

  • Escaping the men she dates.

In each essay, her sense of adventure, fierce independance, ingenuity, and the love of nature and laughter shines through.
