VICTORIA "TORI" MORINI '10

Tori Morini ’10 has spent the past seven-plus years of her career tenaciously moving up the ladder at Good Morning America. She progressed from a Studio Intern the summer after college graduation to her current role as Producer of the morning show.
At Canterbury, Tori took advantage of all the school had to offer. She played ice hockey, lacrosse, and field hockey; managed the boys’ varsity baseball team; and was a dorm proctor and peer counselor. She participated in the Nicaragua and Montana service trips and was active in Women of Canterbury. After leaving the hilltop, Tori graduated cum laude from Syracuse University with a B.S. in Communications.
 
 1. What advice would you give to young women in high school today?
Always, always trust your gut! Whether it's about people you meet, opportunities in your career, a relationship, or if you can't decide on an outfit in a store—everyone is going to give you a different opinion. My advice is to listen to your intuition and surround yourself with people who lift you up. 
 
2. What is your favorite Canterbury memory?
It's so hard to pick just one! A few highlights:
  • I took up JV Ice Hockey my third form year and learned how to ice skate. Shout out to Mr. Roberts for his patience because most of us were novice skaters and didn't even know how to stop!
  • Being a proctor in Hickory Hearth in my Fifth Form year.
  • Mrs. Behan's Bio of the Brain class in my Sixth Form year. 
  • Living in South House with the majority of the senior girls was so fun, and we had lots of laughs!
     
3. Which Canterbury faculty member had the greatest impact on you?
Mr. and Mrs. Omaña! I was fortunate to have the opportunity to go on two service trips to Nicaragua with them, and I also had them both as teachers. The Omañas took the time to get to know me personally outside of class and made me feel like family. Eleven years later (wow!), they are one of the reasons I still feel connected to Canterbury. Even though Mrs. Omaña is a Hoya and I am a diehard 'Cuse girl, we are both loyal Saints!
 
4. What is something you learned at Canterbury that has stuck with you into adulthood?
The sense of independence that I gained at Canterbury served me in college and in my career. I learned how to be confident, work under pressure, and make informed decisions, which are crucial when producing live TV.
 
5. What is one thing that is on your bucket list?
I definitely won't be skydiving any time soon, but for my post-pandemic bucket list, I look forward to traveling again. I've had a very exciting career so far as a TV producer, and a goal for my future is to one day start my own company.
