Valerie is an accomplished woman who has battled through her life on the road to success!
“The whole HDMH vibe helps give me motivation to just keep pushing forward and achieve my goals and know that nothing so far in life has been able to stop me!”
This statement from Valerie is so powerful because life has certainly tried to stop her. As a young girl, Valerie was often bullied for being small.
“When I was younger I had a growth hormone deficiency, was picked on and pushed around for being tiny, and had to take daily hormone and steroid shots for years.”
These years only made Valerie stronger as she went on to attend college and have a successful career. However, just when she thought her struggles were over, life threw her a heater, up and in!
“Years later while a freshman in college, I got into a very traumatic accident that put me in a coma…”
Doctors gave her a 50% chance of recovery and she required multiple surgeries including two brain surgeries.
NONE OF THIS HAS STOPPED VALERIE!!
“Since then, I have gone on to obtain three degrees, including my MBA. I am working on my CPA and have a successful career – but more importantly, I always have a constant drive to see how far I can push myself against any challenge or curveball life may throw at me.”
WOW… Valerie, THANK YOU!!
