Vegan Vicki grew up in Cleveland, Ohio but has strong roots planted deep in the South. Vegan Vicki spent many summers and hours in the kitchen watching and learning traditional cooking methods from her family. After a diagnosis of lung cancer (nonsmoker) back in 2008, she began to research various causes of cancer. When recovering from having her lower left lung removed, Vicki knew she needed to change her lifestyle, first becoming a vegetarian, then switching to veganism.
She is a self-taught vegan chef, who has focused her talents on developing and perfecting vegan recipes to not only please the palate but to also feed the vegan soul. She also wants to help people live a more holistic lifestyle. She is the owner of Urban Sweetness, an all vegan culinary services company, in Cleveland, Ohio. Vegan Vicki is a cookbook author of 30 Days Vegan. She is a recurring guest chef personality on Cleveland’s Fox 8 Recipe Box and WKYC Channel 3. She has done cooking demonstrations with Heinen’s, CMHA Wellness, Hudson Library and Historical Society. Vegan Vicki was a featured presenter at the 2018 Cleveland VegFest. Vicki is a Chef Partner with the Ronald McDonald House program Rise and Dine. Vegan Vicki is also the only vegan chef chosen to be a Finalist of the Launch Test Kitchen for the Quicken Loans Arena. She is currently studying to become a Certified Holistic and Sports Nutritionist.
