Vicki Cowart has been the President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains for 15 years. But, this isn’t where her career started. Vicki spent the first 26 years of her working life in the geological sciences.

A self-described nerd, Vicki loved the challenge of math and geophysics. But, as she progressed in her career, she realized much of her engergy and lots of her excitement was put into women’s issues. From helping found the Association for Women Geoscientists to trying to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment to serving on the board of NARAL, much of Vicki’s life has been dedicated to leveling the playing field for women. Repotting herself in the world of Planned Parenthood has been a natural extension of this passion.

Kerry found Vicki at her home in Denver, CO. They talked about the importance of Planned Parenthood, following your passion, and how to keep positive energy in hard times.
