Valerie is from “west Philadelphia born and raised”. She was encouraged to use her rudimentary piano skills as a church accompanist starting in the sixth grade. Valerie found her true joy and calling to church music ministry after her graduation from Boston University. She used her teaching skills to develop, coach and encourage congregants and choir members, to not only make a joyful noise, but to be a blessing through music. She has a graduate degree in voice from Temple University and has studied conducting at Westminster Choir College.
If Valerie could be anywhere in the world, she would be on some tropical island dancing and enjoying the sun, surf and a tropical drink of course!
