Valerie graduated from Millikin University in Decatur, IL in May 2021 with a BA in theatre. After graduating she traveled to Montana, Georgia, Florida, and Ireland – her first overseas trip! She is CPR certified and loves teaching children. The Drowsy Chaperone, Beauty and the Beast, and The Addams Family are her favorite musicals. Her hobbies include watching the latest movies both in theatres and on Disney+, going out to dinner with her friends, bowling, arcades and the like. Valerie lives for the experience! She would like to thank her mother for always reminding her that she could do whatever she sets her mind to.
