About Val

Our Founder 

Valerie is a dynamic speaker, facilitator, trainer, and mentor.  She is committed to working hard and pursuing  excellence.  

Valerie began her career in 2008 with a leadership training &  consulting company focused on business executives and “C-Level" leaders.  While there, she had the opportunity to learn from renowned leadership development professionals and develop her skills.  After a few years, however, it became clear to her that she was being called to something different.  Passionate about helping young women and girls develop the confidence and skills they need

to be successful leaders, she founded Blossom & Flourish in October 2011.  Since then, she has been privileged to share her message of empowerment and leadership with over 400 middle school and high school students around western Pennsylvania.  

Valerie holds her M.S. in Organizational Leadership from Geneva College and her B.A. in Communications and Business from the University of Pittsburgh where she was also a member of the Varsity softball team and Valedictorian of Graduating Student-Athletes her senior year.  She is also certified in Compression Planning, a strategic planning tool.


She currently lives in Pittsburgh, PA with her awesome and supportive husband, Morgan, and their spoiled cat, Nike.
