Val started her life’s journey in Chile and landed in Seattle in her early teens. She promised her mom it would be a few months. Fourteen years later she’s a coffee-sipping, board-game-playing Seattleite. Bringing a multicultural perspective and passion for relationship building, Val is ever seeking a better, safer, more inclusive and loving place for all. For a good time, ask Val for photos of her dynamic duo (puppy + bunny = cuteness overload) and challenge her to a game of Rummikub – just don’t be surprised when she wins.
