Valerie at South Puget Sound Community College

Meet Valerie

I started this journey in 1999, serving businesses, non-profit organizations, and private clients. I am a proud ‘Coug’ having earned my B.S. and M.S. from Washington State University. Following a 20-year career teaching 7- 12 public school and community college levels, I decided to take a deep breath, spread my wings, and leap into owning my own business.  

Successful event management requires characteristics in which I excel: attending to tiny details, multi-tasking, strategizing intentional goals, and leading groups of diverse individuals to accomplish a common goal. 

I love spending time with my extended family, building forts with my grandkids, and baking my world famous chocolate chip cookies. I dream of riding an elephant while wearing a large, feathered hat and creating the most perfect event for you.
