A native Arizonan, Valerie was born and raised in Phoenix. Growing up, she was the only daughter in a family full of boys. Valerie has 5 brothers! She is the proud mom of daughter Makenzi, age 23. She’s also mom to one fur-baby, a miniature Schnauzer named Gracie.
Over the past 32 years, Valerie has worked in the Title & Escrow Industry, where she has held a variety of roles in specialized departments including Accounting and Escrow. For the past 22 years, she’s focused on Sales & Marketing, helping realtors create marketing plans and attracting new clients. Valerie loves what she does. She says, “It makes me happy when our clients are happy!”
When she’s not working, Valerie enjoys spending time with her boyfriend of three years, Mike. You might even find her on the back of Mike’s Harley-Davidson motorcycle! She also likes cooking, traveling throughout Arizona, taking road trips across the Southwest and California, watching movies and spending time with her daughter, friends and family.
Valerie joined T.E.A.M. 4 Travis after attending the 2021 Tee It Up to Fight Asplenia TOPGOLF Tournament. Travis' story touched Valerie's heart. Compelled by the lack of knowledge about and testing for Isolated Congenital Asplenia, she knew she could bring her passion for helping children to this crucial mission.
