To say that Valerie is interested in politics and policy is bit of an understatement. A political science graduate from Campbell University, she joined Capstrat after working as an associate at a lobbying firm in Raleigh. She also has interned with the North Carolina Department of Environmental and Natural Resources (now the Department of Environmental Quality), the NC Department of Health and Human Services and the election campaigns of Governor Pat McCrory and Senator Thom Tillis.
As an account coordinator for public affairs, Valerie works with clients like the NC Economic Developers Association (NCEDA), the Office of Mortgage Settlement Oversight (OMSO), Oncor, Duke Energy and South State Bank. Outside of work, you can find her enjoying any of the following: yoga, a hike, a round of golf, a tennis match or some delicious chicken parmesan.
