Vicky Collier

I was born and grew up in Stanley with my younger siblings. After finishing schooling in the Falkland Islands I attended Peter Symonds College where I gained my A-Levels. I am proud of my family ties to the Falklands; one of my ancestors was a stonemason who built many iconic sights around Goose Green, including the stone Corral in Darwin Settlement.

I returned to Falklands after completing her studies, as I had always planned, and joined the Fire Service as a Retained Firefighter in 2013 alongside my full time job. Three years later I was successful in gaining full time employment with the Fire Service and since then, I have travelled to the Fire Service College in the U.K. to become the Falklands first female Firefighter to obtain official firefighting qualifications. I now live in Stanley with my partner, Keiran, where we have built our home. I continue to develop my interests in education and wildlife through volunteer work with the Girl guides and Falklands Conservation. I have previously represented the Falklands at the Commonwealth Youth Parliament and have a keen interest in local politics and the future of the Islands.
