“I, and some of the staff, have known Vic for years and have held her in high regard for what she does and her path. She has great attention to details, is passionate about development and a wonderful person to have around our players. We have always wanted to work together and bringing her here to the courage is exciting. Her knowledge will be a big asset for our staff and players,” Nahas said.
