Vicki Hover-Williamson has 30 years’ experience in volunteer program management and grant oversight.

Vicki is passionate about using her knowledge of nonprofit oversight and on-the-ground experience to offer technical assistance and problem-solving to TrustedRide-Certified project staff. On a more personal note, Vicki was blessed to be the sole caregiver for her mother for several years while raising preschoolers and working full time in a position that included frequent travel; all of which provides a limited, but vivid, perspective on challenges related to non-emergency transportation and related demands.
