An attorney specializing in legislative and governmental matters, Victoria Gruber has since 2006 served as Counsel to the Maryland Senate and as Chief of Staff to Maryland Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller, Jr. A native of Silver Spring, she is also a proud Terp, having been elected Vice President and President of the Student Government Association during her days as a student at the University of Maryland College Park. Prior to beginning her work for the Maryland General Assembly in 1999, Gruber was as a legislative lobbyist for organizations in the healthcare, professional sports, public safety and law enforcement industries. Her outstanding service earned her the First Citizen Award by the Senate of Maryland, and her community leadership has also been lauded by The Daily Record and the Baltimore Sun. Gruber’s personal and professional dedication to our state and her loyalty to the University of Maryland represent the very best of what it means to be a Terp.
