Biography

Vikki Goodwin represents Texas House District 47 in western and far south Travis County. As a member of the state House in the 86th Legislative Session, she was successful in passing a number of bills that serve her district and the state. She was a co-author of landmark school finance reform (HB 3), as well as the law boosting retired teacher pay (SB 12). In addition, she authored and sponsored five bills directly affecting HD47 that became law. In the upcoming session, Vikki will continue to advocate for the people of her district, the environment, a strong economy, and a sound budget through her work in the Texas House.

Representative Goodwin is a small business owner, a real estate broker, and a community leader. After graduating from the University of Texas with a BBA—and the LBJ School of Public Affairs with a master’s degree—Vikki remained in Austin and raised her children.

A long-time resident of Shady Hollow, Vikki has been very active in her community, serving on HOA Boards, civic club boards, ABOR committees, on an AISD task force and more. Her volunteer work gave her insight into the need for various services in the community and strengthened her determination to help those who slip through the cracks, so often as a result of medical issues, student loans, or low paying jobs. Through her professional and philanthropic endeavors, Vikki knows which issues matter most to the residents of District 47 and was inspired to become an advocate for her community.

Vikki Goodwin representa al Distrito 47 de la Cámara de Texas en el oeste y sur del Condado de Travis. Es propietaria de una pequeña empresa y agente inmobiliaria. Después de graduarse con una licenciatura en la Universidad de Texas —y con una Maestría en la Facultad de Asuntos Públicos de LBJ— Vikki se quedó en Austin y crió a sus hijos.

Vikki, residente de Shady Hollow de hace mucho tiempo, tiene una participación muy activa en su comunidad, donde se ha desempeñado en juntas de comunidades de propietarios, juntas de clubes cívicos, comités de la Junta de Agentes Inmobiliarios de Austin (ABoR) y un grupo de trabajo del Distrito Escolar Independiente de Austin. El trabajo voluntario inspiró a Vikki para ser una defensora de las escuelas públicas en la Legislatura de Texas. Además, su trabajo voluntario con Impact Austin le dio una idea de las necesidades de diversos servicios de la comunidad. Su trabajo voluntario con Austin Habitat for Humanity y Foundation Communities fortaleció su determinación de ayudar a quienes se escurren por las grietas del sistema, a menudo a causa de problemas médicos, préstamos estudiantiles o trabajos de baja remuneración.

Como miembro de la Cámara de Representantes del Estado, Vikki seguirá defendiendo a las personas de su distrito, el medio ambiente, una economía sólida y un presupuesto firme mediante su trabajo en los Comités de Asuntos Urbanos y de Seguridad Nacional/Pública.
