Bio

Vickie is no stranger to poverty and hardship. Growing up in a trailer park in rural Davidson County, Vickie looked to her teachers for influence and direction. She realized education was the key to a better life for herself and her family. She attributes her success to the Lord , her grandparents and her teachers. Vickie's been a school kid working to make ends meet while going to college, a "grunt" at a racing sports marketing firm, a waitress, an entrepreneur struggling to start a new business, and is now a successful business owner navigating customer service, government regulations, employees and tax liability. All these life experiences give Vickie a unique perspective to take to the State Senate and they will guide her as she seeks to enact policies that make living the "American Dream" a possibility for Iredell and Yadkin County citizens.

Vickie and her husband Brett are the proud owners of Sawyer Insurance and Financial Services. Starting in 2002, working together, they built their agency from scratch. They now have one of the largest insurance agencies in Iredell County, currently serving over 4,200 households. Sawyer Insurance is recognized as an Erie Insurance Agency Triple Crown Agency. Vickie is a licensed Property and Casualty Insurance Agent, a licensed Life Insurance agent, and she has her Series 6 and 63 licenses.

Besides her family and her business, Vickie's other passion is giving back to her community. Her love for public service began when she was elected Vice President of the new PTO at her daughter's school, Lakeshore Elementary. She later became President of the PTO and as president, she oversaw a fundraising campaign that raised $175,000 to upgrade the school's playground with a running track, turf and new equipment. Vickie serves on the Iredell County Planning Board and as Chairman of the Board for Iredell County Crosby Scholars. She remains very active in her children's schools, currently serving as President of the Lakeshore Middle School PTO and as head coach of Lakeshore Youth Athletic Association. Vickie has coached Youth and Women's Softball for the past ten years. Vickie's strong record as a leader in her community earned her the Sara Haire Tice Women in Leadership Award from the Mooresville - South Iredell Chamber of Commerce.

Vickie and Brett live in Mooresville. They are proud parents of two children; Sydney, age 15, and Braedy, age 11. The Sawyers are active members of Rocky Mount United Methodist Church where Vickie serves as a Trustee. After graduating as Salutatorian from Winston-Salem's Parkland High School, Vickie was an honor graduate of UNC Charlotte and a NC Teaching Fellow.
