Vickie Austin fell in love with strategic planning during her career in healthcare marketing. Sitting in an executive boardroom in Scottsdale, Arizona, in the early 1980s, Vickie was enthralled with the process of mapping a future through words. She took that simple model and applied it to her own career development, then began helping others with their careers by creating strategic marketing plans for them. A business was born.

In 1997 she launched her company, CHOICES Worldwide, and in 2002 she transitioned to full-time coaching. She helps executives, entrepreneurs and those in mid-career transition map their own business & career success through strategic planning, networking and marketing coaching. Vickie specializes in working with professional services firms, helping them market and grow their businesses in accounting, healthcare, financial services, legal and consulting services.
