New York, NY, United States – 09-06-2022 –

Viki Zarkin, Motivational Speaker, Coach and Author of “I Am The One” was recently chosen to receive the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award for 2022 given by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP).

While inclusion with the International Association of Top Professionals is an honor, only a few members are chosen for the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award. These special honorees are distinguished based on their longevity in their fields, their contributions they have made to society and the impact they have had on their industries. Viki will be honored for her selection at IAOTP’s Annual Awards Gala being held at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas this December. 

Viki Zarkin is being recognized as a Lifetime Achievement Awardee for dedicating many years of her life’s work as an expert in Motivational Speaking and Coaching.

Currently, Viki’s emphasis is on motivating and inspiring others who may need guidance and support during their journey through cancer and motherhood. Viki is a Stage 4 Breast Cancer SURVIVOR, and also a Mom, a Wife, a Daughter and a Sister. For over 10 years, Viki has been living with Stage 4 metastatic cancer.

As a prominent and active Motivational Speaker and Coach, she discusses important topics and her extraordinary experiences including doctor-patient relationships, nutrition and appreciating the “little things in life” all while navigating through the Healthcare world. Viki believes by increasing awareness and encouraging young women to believe in themselves, always challenging the status quo, by helping them find their voice and teaching them to listen to their hearts, we can create change and much more. 

Viki’s areas of expertise include leadership, sales management, public speaking, customer service, training, small business knowledge, event planning, program management, team building and leadership development. With her unique thought process, deals in the boardroom can be made just as easily as they can help someone through a cancer battle.

Before embarking on her professional career path, Viki attended Ithaca College and earned a Bachelor of Science in Communications and Broadcast Journalism. 

Throughout her illustrious career, Viki has received awards, accolades and has been recognized nationwide for her dedication to her profession. This year she is being considered for a feature article in TIP (Top Industry Professional) Magazine and also for the Empowered Woman of the Year Award given by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP). Viki was also recognized by P.O.W.E.R. as Woman of the Month in April of 2020 and she is member of the National Association of Professional Women. 

Aside from her successful career, Viki is a sought-after speaker who has hosted several speaking events nationwide and contributed so much of her knowledge towards fundraising events.  As Motivational Speaker, she has shared her journey through cancer and motherhood which has inspired and engaged audiences through her authentic yet heartfelt experiences. 

Over the course of her professional career, Viki was featured on the local new station, CBS 21 and this is just the beginning for her. Her life’s work and story have been published in a multitude of newspapers and magazines such as the Women’s Newspaper, Harrisburg Magazine and the Community Review. Her book entitled “I AM THE ONE”, has just recently been released. 

Looking back, Viki attributes her success to her perseverance, her rare ability to overcome illness and her passion of helping individuals with their personal and business growth. When not working, she enjoys spending time with her family, cooking and traveling. For the future, Viki will continue motivating and inspiring others so they can learn and follow their own instincts especially when it matters the most so they can get the proper healthcare to help women. And on the other side of the coin, Viki is also teaching Doctors to listen to their patients so they can set long term goals and have more preventive medicine and more communication between the doctor and patient.

Viki is entering her 10th year as a living stage 4 metastatic breast cancer “lifer” as she calls it.  She travels to Johns Hopkins Hospital for maintenance chemotherapy treatment monthly for life.  Viki is a lot more than just a cancer story she is also a Mom, a Wife, a Daughter, a Sister, a Friend. Like Viki’s Motto says, “I’m the Luckiest Girl around…. I just happen to Have Cancer.
