Hello, I'm Valerie.
A little about my background. My B.S. is in Child and Adolescent Development. I have my multiple subject teaching credential for grades K-8 and MA in Education. I am also a Certified Health Coach. Currently I am teaching full-time the traditional school year, therefore available on weekends, holidays, and summer.
Acting and modeling was a path I chose to pursue after stumbling upon my first acting role in an independent film.
Since then, I fell in love with the camera. I am trained and experienced in commercials, film and television including drama and comedy, improv, hosting, teleprompter experience, print modeling, foot modeling, hair modeling, tradeshows, and promotions.
With my ambiguous look I play various ethnic backgrounds. I also produced a web series pilot titled SPACES the series, (copyright 2006) where I play the lead role of the surly, and jaded entertainment attorney, BIANCA. I co-wrote the series along with writer Lisa Marie Brennan, and writer/director/producer James Tucker inspired by actual, as well as fictional stories based on MySpace.
I am currently SAG eligible and will work in the following paid assignments:
commercials and infomercials
hosting (teleprompter experience)
foot/shoe modeling - fit, print, shoe shows, I AM a true 6
tradeshows (sales and marketing experience)
