Val was born in Texas and raised in Walla Walla. She takes pride in being a small-town girl. After experiencing the city life of the Seattle area for the better part of 20 years, she has returned to her roots in the Walla Walla Valley. Once back on this side of the mountains, she hit the ground running helping to start up a successful masonry company in Tri-Cities and has now moved on to help the people of the community she grew up in with finding the home of their dreams. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, especially her daughter who will be graduating high school this summer, cooking, road-trips and outdoor adventures.
