Vikki Webster, Executive Director & Founder

 

Vikki Webster, a native of the south suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. With 38 years of experience working in an executive administrative capacity for major universities, legal institutions and healthcare arena, these roles have prepared Vikki for the role she currently holds with the Foundation. Working with the public, some being underserved and misrepresented, she knew years ago her mission would be to help those who didn’t have a voice, unaware it would be brought to life after the suicide of her brothers Reginald & Paul. Vikki continues to raise awareness regarding the need for mental and behavioral health coverage for everyone. This aligns with her goal to raise awareness regarding suicide prevention as well. To let those struggling that it is ok to seek help and that suicide is not an option. When she’s not doing Foundation work, Vikki enjoys spending time with her husband Byron of 26 years, writing, and keeping Reggie & Paul’s memory alive with quality family time.
