Valerie started her career as an IPO lawyer, investment banker and Internet executive in the Silicon Valley. She then transitioned to Hollywood, where she enjoyed success as a screenwriter and director, and recently returned to her roots by founding Goalkeeper, a tech company that makes it easier for you to make the people you love happy. She has written three books and published several more under her trademarked “…as a Second Language” series.
