Community Engagement Director
Vickie has been beating the drum of cardiovascular health and wellness education in and around Arkansas for more than 20 years. She currently serves as the program director for Champions For Health.
Vickie began her journey of health education and community involvement in 1996 when she joined Arkansas Heart Hospital as the community relations director, then transitioned over to the Champions For Health foundation in 2015. Over the past 22 years, she has worked within the community to provide prevention, awareness, educational programs and screenings. Her real passion is speaking. Vickie says the opportunity to stand in front of a group (no matter the size) ignites her passion for helping people understand that their health is their greatest asset and should not be taken for granted. We all have the power of choices within our reach each day, and it is those choices that will ensure the healthiest life possible.
Vickie has two sons (and lovely daughters-in-law), three fabulous grandchildren and one three-legged cat. You can find her most Friday nights lighting up the dance floor – she loves to ballroom dance, Latin and swing dance.
