Vicki Huntington has been involved with tobacco prevention and control for over 26 years. She started with the movement in 1997 at the American Lung Association of Gulfcoast Florida and has been the Section Chief/State Program Manager for the Wisconsin Tobacco Prevention and Control Program since 2008 at the Department of Health Services. Prior to that, she had been the Policy Analyst, Youth Programs Coordinator and Disparities Coordinator. As Section Chief, Vicki helped guide Wisconsin’s movement through the implementation of major policies like the statewide SmokeFree Air and two tobacco tax increases. Vicki enjoys collaborating with the many partners at the local, state, and national levels that are involved in planning and implementing a comprehensive approach to tobacco prevention and control in Wisconsin. Vicki is very passionate about addressing the tobacco related disparities that exist because of the tobacco industry’s historical targeting of marginalized communities. Besides Vicki’s commitment to public health, she has a degree in Arts Management, worked in theatre management for 12 years and has passion for the arts being an integral part of a community. Vicki loves spending time outside hiking with her daughter, husband and trying to keep up with their rescued three legged cat, Golden Retriever, and Great Dane/white Swiss Shepard fur kids.
