Vickie is a Breast Cancer Survivor, experienced registered yoga teacher (E-RYT 200) certified in the Y4C (Yoga 4 Cancer) methodology, and mother to a precious school-aged daughter. It is by the grace of her savior Jesus Christ that she is alive, and why she was inspired to start Faithful Warrior Wellness in paying it forward to others impacted by cancer.
Diagnosed in 2013, Vickie practiced yoga throughout her chemotherapy and surgical recoveries. It was through those challenging days she learned to modify the poses to meet her body where it was in the healing process. This is the basis of Vickie's approach to leading others in treatment and in recovery.
Essential Oils came into Vickie's life immediately after her chemo was finished. She was looking for a way to eliminate as many chemicals from her life as possible. Vickie began using Young Living Essential Oils for everyday support of her body's functions, and walked through a process of 'ditch and switch', where one by one, toxic cleaning and beauty products were ditched and switched with plant-based essential oils and products. She teaches classes on how to use essential oils and why they are critical to support every survivor's bodily systems!
Vickie continues to come alongside her students in helping them use yoga and essential oils to bring hope and wholeness after a cancer diagnosis.
