As a Senior Consultant at Denison, she provides consulting and executive coaching in a variety of areas:

At Denison, Valerie says she is “inspired by all the great work our clients do to shape their culture and improve their bottom line. As a consultant, it’s gratifying to see the benefits that follow when clients align their organizations around the insights gained through the Denison Culture Survey and the perspectives we offer from our global experience.”

With Valerie’s input, leaders think differently about themselves and about organizational culture and its impact on their business. They learn to take a strategic approach to culture management, discovering how values are embedded in their culture, and recognizing the importance of the employee voice as they create a new vision, mission and value set for their organization.

Valerie approaches coaching as a leader-led process focused on pin-pointing areas of strength and needed development to maximize their leadership effectiveness and attain their career goals.

Valerie earned an M.A. in Organizational Development from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology.

She is based in St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A.
