    Vicki Cohen has been involved with greyhounds most of her life. It all began on a farm before becoming a greyhound trainer. Vicki met her husband and fellow trainer Paul Cohen in Phoenix, Arizona. Vicki joined MSGAO as director in 2006 and to date has found forever homes for more than 1,200 retired greyhounds. For Vicki, it's all about the hounds!
