New to New Zealand, Valerie is a skilled writer, editor, and digital media specialist who has spent much of her career communicating about science, policy, and technology. She has well-honed skills in copywriting, editing, web writing and publishing, social media outreach, and communications planning and measurement.
She began her career working as a technical editor for organisations such as Deloitte Consulting and Aon Consulting, then fell in love with online communications while writing and editing for Los Alamos National Laboratory.
