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.
