Valerie is one of the most knowledgeable professionals I've ever had the privilege of working with. She has an innate ability to look at a situation and bring her best talents to bear on resolving it positively. More importantly, however, Valerie manages to deliver amazing work while still maintaining humility and self-awareness. And she manages to do it all with quick wit and a smile. I hope that the opportunity to work with Valerie presents itself again and it is my pleasure to highly recommend her.
Valerie is one of the most talented, hard working, intelligent and dedicated marketing professionals I've ever had the opportunity to work with. Her creativity and ability to think outside the box, combined with her unrelenting perfectionism and attention to detail make any campaign which she undertakes a smashing success.
"Valerie was my right hand for several years at Sprint PCS while I was serving as AVP of the Los Angeles Area Sales and Marketing team. Her intelligence, competence, marketing savvy and warm personality led to four promotions over three years, and she integrated perfectly with our management team. I trusted her implicitly with decisions and projects both large and small across a variety of disciplines and could be confident that she would deliver on time and under budget, always with leadership, creativity, insight and focus. She will naturally become a core asset in any organization in which she serves."
