Valerie has been a great fit for me as a mentor! I was urged by Dorothy Agger-Gupta to work with Valerie from the beginning of my time here at Fielding. She has helped me push the edges of my doctoral education with real-world, scholar-practitioner experience. I couldn’t or probably wouldn’t have arrived at where I am without her assistance. I have benefited from and appreciate her guidance. She has seen me for who I am and for what I endeavor to achieve in this doctoral program. It’s been a pleasure to work with her!
