Training Up Young Women & Girls to be Changemakers

“Valerie is a sough-after speaker and consultant for girls’ schools and organizations, as well as professional development for educators and girl-serving professionals.”


With a Master of Social Work and over a decade of writing books and curricula, Valerie partners with leading girls’ schools, women colleges and organizations to find fun and unconventional ways to train up young women and girls to be changemakers.

Because she aims to start conversations that lead to inspired actions, Valerie has authored several books including her latest release, What Do You Dare to Dream: A Call to Action and her forthcoming book, Hey Girl, Dream. She is also in the process of launching Hey Girl, Dream Academy, an online SEL curriculum for middle school and high school girls.

Her interactive presentations and down-to-earth speaking style are just some of the reasons students themselves arrange to have her brought in.

Whether it’s through her books, campaigns, talks or trainings, the content and experiences Valerie creates empower girls and those who empower them.
