“There is no way to be a perfect mother, but a million ways to be a great one.” – Jill Churchill
I spend every day trying to be a great one for my family and I would like to thank Gulf Coast Mom for allowing me to share my story.
My name is Victoria Williams. I am the proud mom to Riley and Brody and married to Keith Williams Jr. I was born and raised on the beautiful Gulf Coast in Biloxi. I received my Marketing Degree from USM. It was after receiving that degree that a light went off. I knew my two greatest goals in life were to be a great mom one day and to change the world in some small way.
That is when I decided to return to school to earn my teaching degree so I could teach preteen children and help influence the decisions they make at such an important pivotal time in their life. I currently have my dream job teaching sixth grade students at St. James Elementary and spend every day guiding them to be the best people they can be.
With my two greatest goals accomplished, I have been able to turn to my personal passion and that is painting. After I put the kids to sleep at night, I have free time that allows me to create and do what I love. That is where Designs by Victoria was born. Friends and family asked for special pieces and as the word spread, business is booming and I could not be more grateful. Every few months I drop a few special designs but also enjoy creating personal pieces that are requested such as baby heartbeats, houses, etc.
The advice I try to follow and emulate for my kids comes from Walt Disney when he said “All of our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” To my fellow Gulf Coast moms, thanks for all you do and if there is anything I can create for you I would be honored to do so.
