Congratulations to Victoria Mendoza, 2021’s Carson City Soroptimist highlights ‘Women Helping Women’ honoree! Read more about Victoria below. Allison MacKenzie is proud to sponsor Victoria and this honor.

Soroptimist International of Carson City is pleased to introduce our next 2021 “Women Helping Women” honoree Victoria Mendoza, who is among eight local women to be honored at our Feb. 18 virtual event.

Victoria is the Executive Director and Managing Attorney for Volunteer Attorneys for Rural Nevadans (VARN) and sponsored by our Partnership Sponsor, Allison MacKenzie, Ltd.

She has been practicing law in Nevada since 1978, and has been an attorney and the Pro Bono Coordinator at VARN since 2014. Victoria’s dedication to VARN’s mission of providing free civil legal services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in our rural counties is evident by your many years of service.

Her leadership in the effort to help the families, most of whom are women with children, has allowed the victims to escape the very difficult situations they face and pursue necessary family law matters.

Victoria has also been actively involved with other community efforts that aim to help women such as the Nevada’s Women Fund, Pack PAWS, Nevada Hispanic Services, and Step II. Thank you, Victoria for being such a committed partner in the efforts to improve the lives of women and girls in our community, by providing your time, expertise and compassion for thousands of women and children in our community.
