RLACEI Board Member
Verkin (Vicki) Keoseian retired in March after 37 years of City service. During Vicki’s extensive City career, she worked for City Planning, Personnel, Rec and Parks, LAPD and LAFD.
She began her City career with City Planning as a Clerk Typist working for the Chief Zoning Administrator’s Office in 1982. Soon after, she was promoted to Sr. Clerk Typist, Personnel, in the Folders Unit supervising staff in calculating the seniority points for promotional candidates and maintaining all City employee folders.
With a desire to work closer to home, she transferred to Rec and Parks in the Valley. She then was promoted to Secretary at the LAPD’s North Hollywood Division. She became an Executive Administrative Assistant II in the LAFD and then an Executive Administrative Assistant III working for the General Manager of Personnel. Before retiring, she worked in Personnel as a Management Analyst working on contracts and budget.
Vicki and her husband, Sam, have been married for more than 36 years. They have two sons, two daughters-in-law and one granddaughter. Their eldest son and daughter-in-law just had their first baby girl, Elia, whom Vicki says is the light of her and Sam’s lives.
Vicki enjoys cooking and helping take care of her granddaughter. So that their children and spouses do not have to worry about preparing meals with their busy work schedules, Vicki and Sam enjoy preparing meals and dropping them off to their children. Vicki loves spending time with family and friends and taking care of her parents. She and Sam also enjoy traveling, and a favorite pastime is visiting wineries.
Vicki joined the Board to help ensure all LA City employee retirees’ benefits are safe.
