Valerie joined the Samuels Center as a Program Associate in June of 2017 after receiving a B.A. in Public Health at the University of California Berkeley. She supports research staff with data collection, training, analysis, and the creation of dissemination tools for a variety of projects. She also coordinates various media platforms and communications for the company. She is currently involved in work for Fresno NEOP, San Joaquin NEOP, and Cultiva LaSalud’s REACH projects. She is passionate about achieving health equity and access for our most vulnerable communities.

As an undergraduate at UC Berkeley, she interned at the Berkeley Rent Board, where she advocated for renters’ rights and conducted research and policy analysis of the housing crisis for Cal students. She grasped at every opportunity to write about health-related issues, assuming the role of contributing writer for the Public Health Advocate Magazine, and co-Editor of her health club’s monthly newsletter. She also founded a chapter of the Volunteers Around the World organization on her college campus. As president, she mentored and lead a group of student volunteers in the Dominican Republic, where she conducted culturally sensitive educational presentations on the links between proper nutrition, exercise, and the risks of tooth decay and oral disease.

She loves traveling to new places, exploring eateries with friends, browsing bookstores for hours, playing tennis, and unwinding with a large cup of chamomile tea and honey.
