Vicky Winkler-Sawgle, Owner

Vicky WinklerI am Vicky Winkler-Sawgle, and I have worked in the field of marketing for many years, except for a brief break in my career to serve in the Peace Corps in 1995 as a micro business consultant. I worked for General Motors for 11 years and helped launch the Saturn vehicle. I worked for New Horizons Rehabilitation Services for five years, in the role as their Director of Marketing. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Marketing Management from Kettering University and my Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Oakland University. I am also an adjunct Professor of Marketing.

When I am not busy working or teaching, I love the outdoors! Living on a small Michigan lake, in the summer, I love to ski, kayak, and swim. In the winter, I enjoy snowshoeing, cross-country and downhill skiing, and ice skating. I have always enjoyed traveling and have a bucket list of places to travel to! I checked one trip off my bucket list in 2022– I traveled to Peru and hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu with my daughter. I see many more adventures in my future!
