About the author


Valerie has been fascinated with people’s stories since she listened to her Filipino grandfather tell tales of being treated with honor in his homeland, contrary to the reality of racial inequity he encountered at the time of his immigration. In a bit of full-circle irony, she was invited in 2015 to speak on the importance of rewriting our personal stories and listening to the stories of others at TEDxIIT - her Filipino grandfather’s 1939 alma mater. 

Valerie continues to see clients in a small private practice in addition to speaking to professional and community audiences on the importance of narrative and rewriting stories. She has been frequently quoted as an expert in media such as Fox Business and Huffington Post and she will host the storytelling podcast "How to Rewrite History" beginning in June 2016. An active member of the midwest standup comedy and storytelling communities in her free time, Valerie performs regularly, finding life to provide ample content for her work on stage.

Update #4 - WE DID IT! May 2, 2016

Good morning! Thanks to all of you, we reached the preorder goal and the book has been forwarded on to prospective publishers. I have been grateful and overwhelmed by the support that you have all given this project. 

Last week, I had an opportunity to meet with two of the people whose stories are included in this book. They, along with the others, are so inspiring - real examples of how rewriting history leads to a more full life. I am excited for you to meet them.

Over the next few weeks, I will be selecting a publisher and working with them on final edits. Once I have a publishing date, I will email you as well as posting it on the book's website and FB pages. If you aren't already following it, you will find updates and the FB link here: www.howtorewritehistory.com

THANK YOU, AGAIN!! See you at the launch! ~XO, Val
