Bio:  DECA started as just a class for this future anesthesiologist, but after attending her first CDC her life was changed and she found love for everything that DECA represents. As a senior from Warr Acres, Valerie has learned that the best leaders are great listeners, effective communicators, and understanding humans. When she finds some spare time, Valerie’s favorite pastime is playing fetch with her dog Maya.
