It took her over a decade to earn her undergraduate degree in Diplomacy and Military Studies from Hawaii Pacific University as she juggled moves, a deployment, and the birth of twin boys.

After graduation, Valerie plans to open her own culture consulting firm to help organizations become places where people can thrive.
