Vicki Smith

Executive Director

Hi, my name is Vicki Smith and I’m the Executive Director at the Van Wert Co. United Way. I came to the United Way after serving on the United Way Board of Directors for a year. I realized that my life goal of helping people were the things that United Way does, so I decided to change career paths from the school system to the non-profit area. I have not looked back, but have strengthened our local United Way with the many connections that I have made with our local schools. I enjoy volunteering and spending time with my family, especially my 6 grandchildren.

Tressa Ringwald

Administrative Assistant

Hi! I’m Tressa, the Administrative Assistant at the Van Wert Co. United Way. I started at the United Way in August of 2021. This position really interested me because I knew the United Way did so many great things for the community, but I didn’t know just how much! I have always been one that loves helping others, and here I get to do that, along with being creative with the different things we do. Outside of work, I love doing photography, crafting, reading, and spending time with my fiance, Corbin, and our son, Ellis.
