Valerie is a Utah native, born and raised in Enterprise. She lived all over the state before returning to Enterprise to raise her family and, most recently, settled in Ivins. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Art in Photography/Digital Imagery (with a minor in Digital Design) from Dixie State University (DSU).

Before coming to RVU, Valerie worked as the PM Circulation Supervisor at the DSU library. In addition, she completed an internship in Special Collections at DSU where she photographed and digitized historical plat maps of Southern Utah. She also worked in IT for a medical transcription company and taught Web Development and Cyber Corps at Enterprise High School. Now at RVU, she is excited to advance the University’s mission and vision and to watch students “as they gain understanding and grow.”
