Valerie discovered that she had a knack for engaging older adults when she volunteered at the memory care community where her father lived. For years, Valerie assisted with activities for her father who had Alzheimer’s and his friends. “My passion is making people happy!” says Valerie. A Marshfield native, Valerie worked as a hairstylist for 35 years before pursuing her calling at Stoney River. Other great sources of joy to Valerie are her 12-year-old daughter and small, tight-knit family.
