Administrative Assistant to the Faculty
Valerie Gaul Alombro has been the administrative assistant to the faculty in the College of Business at Loyola University New Orleans for 20 years. Valerie attended Dominican College and Loyola University New Orleans. In 2013, Valerie received the Coadjutor Optimus Award at the University for her outstanding performance above what is required or expected in her job, and is representative of Loyola's committment to its Jesuit values. Prior to Valerie working at Loyola, she worked in the health care industry at Children’s Hospital.
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.
Valerie volunteers for the Legion of Mary Ministry at St. Matthew Catholic Church handling correspondence for the President. She and her husband (and best friend), Lloyd, live in Harahan. Valerie enjoys gardening, and is a devoted Saints fan! She also enjoys listening to music of ASAP, the Alombro Stephens Acoustic Project, in which Lloyd plays the bass guitar.
