Meet Mrs. America 2012
Formerly Mrs. Alaska - Vicki Sarber
I was thrilled to represent the amazing and diverse married women of…Alaska. Land of
the Midnight Sun…and the magnificent place The Sarber Family is lucky enough to call
home! But then, when I was crowned Mrs. America...my whole world changed!
I’m Vicki Sarber and my husband Greg and I are lifelong Alaskans. We have been blissfully married for 12 years
and choose to live and raise our three vibrant children in the small fishing community of Homer Alaska…Halibut
Capital of the World! On any given day expect to see us at the beach, fishing, clamming, bird watching, skiing,
snow machining or volunteering alongside our fellow neighbors for whatever project is in need.
I am an A.S.I.D. Interior Designer by profession and am certified in the decorative artistry of faux painting and
floral design. I also have the pleasure of doing voice and TV spots for our local networks. That being said, I have
happily taken leave from the design world to enjoy what matters most….my family. Life goes by so quickly, I
don’t want to miss a minute with Jackson, 9; Vianne, 8 and Pinky who is very 2! That’s why it’s an easy decision
to be a devoted wife, stay at home mom and home school teacher.
Greg and I believe firmly that being a parent is the hardest and most important thing we will ever do in life. Our
children are gifts to the world! Too many of them are not reaching their potential by not having a safe, loving
and stable family. It is our duty to protect and advocate for all children, they are our most valuable resource and
our best chance for a great tomorrow! Listen to the dreams of our children, lift them up on eagles wings and
watch them soar…..let us always put family first!

As a young woman I was faced with some difficult challenges that forced me to take on adult responsibilities
before most young women my age at that time. With the help of God, notonly did I successfully meet that
challenge head on, but I became stronger and more resilient Because of that experience, I have a passion
for helping others persevere and overcome challenges that they may be facing. This experience continues to
motivate me to "pay-it-forward" by volunteering with the Office of Public Advocacy as a CASA (Court
Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer. Working closely with this organization provides me with the
opportunity to increase awareness of the need for CASA volunteers, specifically how foster children can
benefit from having a CASA volunteer assigned to their case.
My husband and I have a passion for traveling. Our love of travel has turned into mutual hobbies for Katie
and Joshua including "DIY" home projects and touring historical architecture. Being absolutely "crazy"
about my husband and kiddos I really look forward and enjoy family days spent playing cornhole, four
wheeling and sledding.
