Valerie was born and raised in the Seattle area. She has always been analytical, athletic and artistic, but never thought of herself as intuitive until her coursework at the Maitreya Seattle Healing and Learning Center. Valerie studied Astrology under both Margaret McElroy and Carol Barbeau.
She has 4 planets in Cancer and has always been a sensitive person, but didn't understand for many years that this sensitivity was also her intuitive guidance coming in. Valerie assists her clients with intuitive readings of their birth or natal charts to assist them with their journey through life. She also uses her artistic ability for healing with the use of color, gardening and photography.
