We had the good fortune of connecting with Mary Ricciardi and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Mary, what inspires you?
My business was inspired by two things: My heart to encourage others to live warrior strong with a healthy lifestyle and provide transformational supplements with no junk in them and I wanted a way to give back towards childhood cancer research in memory of my son.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I am the founder and CEO of my supplement company Warrior Strong Wellness.

I am a Lifestyle Expert and a Board Certified Holistic Health Coach, Certified Gut Health Specialist, Certified Nutrition Specialist and Certified Mindset Coach. I have a digital video course called Warrior Strong Lifestyle 365 -which is a self-study Lifestyle coaching course.

I created Warrior Strong Wellness in 2017, shortly after I lost my son to childhood cancer. I wanted a way to help people to fortify their bodies with supplements that helped with overall health while focusing on immunity, gut health and longevity with supplements that were free of all of the junk that many supplements have in them as well as raise awareness and funds for Childhood Cancer. Warrior Strong Wellness gives a portion of proceeds to Childhood Cancer Research every day. What I’m most proud of is our integrity in the creation of our supplements, as well as over the past 5 years we have given over $45,000 towards childhood cancer research to the St Baldrick’s Foundation.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I am a Las Vegas native and live in the southwest area of town so I love to walk and hike at Mountains edge park or go to a Pilates Reformer or yoga class at Pilates +Yoga @lasvegaspilatesandyoga Or I’ll go do some strength training at the EŌS gym!
For breakfast or lunch -I love Craft Kitchen
And for a fabulous dinner Locale Italian Eatery or Hola Mexican restaurant are two of my favorites!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My heart is always to make a difference by giving back to childhood cancer research in memory of my son Cooper. He will always be my greatest inspiration because he was the greatest warrior that I will ever know. I will always keep the promises I made to him before he went to heaven.
My biggest cheerleader and mentor is my loving husband -who encouraged me to start my company Warrior Strong Wellness in 2017, just a year after we lost our son. He knew it would give me a greater purpose. And my three daughters have given me encouragement and love these past five years while I’ve been growing my business, I’m very blessed to have such an amazing support system and family.
