Valerie works in the recreation and sport sector as the Executive Director for Recreation PEI. In this role, she gets to promote active living and the benefits of physical literacy for everyone.

She played ringette, basketball, and field hockey as a kid, spent some time as a hockey official, and is now learning to curl. She is a self-professed Olympi-phile and firmly believes that she could have been an exceptional skeleton racer if she’d known such a thing existed in her youth.

Also a champion for True Sport, Valerie supports KidSport PEI because she knows that every child deserves the many benefits of participating in good sport. Kidsport PEI does critical work in removing financial barriers so that every child can play.
