Vicki Schmidt is a lifelong Kansan & Republican, born and raised in Wichita. She and her high school sweetheart, Dr. Michael Schmidt, MD, have been married 46 years. Vicki graduated from KU’s School of Pharmacy and has worked more than 40 years as a local pharmacist. They made their home in Topeka, where they raised their two sons. They are also proud grandparents of three.

It was her experience as a pharmacist that drew her to run for the Kansas Legislature, where she served 14 years, including 12 as a member of the Financial Institutions and Insurance Committee and six as chair of the Public Health and Welfare Committee. On November 6, 2018, she was elected as Kansas Insurance Commissioner, with the largest vote total statewide. When she was sworn-in on January 14, 2019, she became the first pharmacist to serve as Kansas Insurance Commissioner and is the only pharmacist in America to hold a statewide office.

Since joining the NAIC, she has served as a member of the A Committee, B Committee, D Committee and currently chairs the C Committee. She also serves as a member of the NIPR Board, SERFF Advisor Board and as a member of the Insurance Compact Management Committee.
