Maroon and Gold runs deep in this family! All of her children, step-children, and numerous family members have earned degrees from Loyola. Although Valerie's children may be grown, she says “the best part of life is being a mom.” She is mom to her four-legged furry friend, Mia, her rescue lab. She and her husband (and best friend), Lloyd, reside in Harahan. Valerie enjoys gardening, and is a devoted Saints fan!
