  • Vicky loves writing about people but is also determined to get to the heart of the story, using her background in investigative journalism and her eye for detail. At Nicki Swift, she brings these things together.
  • She not only writes about actors but ghostwrites for some of them as well, also counting notable models, street artists, influencers, and professional athletes among those she works with.
  • She also started up a successful business during a pandemic and taught herself how to bake and beautifully decorate cakes — a testament to her grit, determination, and perseverance.


Vicky has been a professional writer for over a decade, even before acquiring her degree. She worked as a journalist for her varsity paper in the Arts section, reporting on local bands, new movie releases, and community productions. Since graduating, she's written for a number of specialized fields, including travel, entertainment, gaming, and even wine, along with highly technical industries, such as emergency services, technology, and mining. During this time, she's also developed her skills in SEO writing, one of the many skills she brings with her to the team at Nicki Swift. When she's not furiously typing away at her keyboard, she enjoys running, baking, and spending time with the loves of her life — her partner, her nieces and nephew, and her dogs.


Vicky has two degrees from The University Of Johannesburg, namely a B.A. in English and another B.A. in Journalism.
