Victoria Wakile is all grown up and living her best life. Kathy Wakile's daughter is definitely thriving five years after her health scare that led to her undergoing two brain surgeries to remove a benign tumor. Now, she's fulfilled her dream of becoming a nurse, according to her mom.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum proudly declared on Instagram that her 25-year-old daughter has gone "From Patient to CareGiver" at a hospital in New York City. Kathy added, "God is Great. #survivor #thriver #blessed."
We have to say that Victoria looks great in scrubs! She's made it known that she's wanted to pursue a career in the health care industry for years.
"As most of you remember, Nursing is my dream. And I will get there. No matter how, no matter what. Earning my BA in Psychology was an amazing experience and is in fact going to help me more than I realized in my nursing career," she shared back in May 2016. "Without my family and friends, I have no idea where I would be... Definitely not graduating, for one. There is no stopping me. Not now, not ever. Next step... NURSING SCHOOL and I am PSYCHED for my BSN!"
Back in February, Victoria celebrated her big 2-5. Her family marked the occasion with a big surprise party that left her with feelings.
She shared on Instagram: "On Saturday, my family and friends surprised me for my 25th birthday and I’ve been trying to find the words since! From getting me out of the house and back, to over a month of planning, to decorating our entire home with butterflies, to every special guest there to surprise and celebrate with me... Not one detail went unnoticed. Thank you Mom and Dad, and very special thank you to my brother, Joey... for this was his idea! Thank you to my boyfriend, who I tortured while he was trying to pass time. Thank you to everyone who made this night possible and for everyone who celebrated with me! I AM SO BEYOND BLESSED. And oh! Thank you to my ugly cry, you ruined the photo."
She's also found love, posting milestone occasions with her boyfriend, Teddy Kosmidis. They celebrated one year of dating back in October 2018 (he used the opportunity to gush about " the love of my life") and she posted a photo with him as recently as March.
And you can bet she's also just as close as ever to her baby brother, Joseph Wakile.
