Profile: Valerie Goddard

Valerie became the Executive Director at the Women’s Resource Center of Sarasota (WRC) last fall and to say she hit the ground running is an unequivocal understatement. With an electric room-filling personality, she’s networking with area community leaders, donors, and other non-profits while also planning the signature 2014 Renaissance luncheon featuring Dr. Ruth Westheimer on March 14.

            “I’m impressed with the organization’s mission and the firm foundation and rich legacy laid by previous female trailblazers. This position is the culmination of experiences and my past nine years of entrepreneurship as a consultant to non-profit, educational, and faith-based organizations. I missed working with a team and its synergy and I was ready for a new opportunity,” she says.

The WRC serves women at its Sarasota and Venice locations with a variety of programs to meet the needs of a diverse group of women—most of whom come to the center for skills to enter the workforce. Founded in 1979 by a consortium of 19 women’s organizations led by the local American Association of University Women, the WRC is a visible presence for women who recently lost a job, are returning to work after a divorce or death of spouse, or who need assistance with a resume and job search.
