Valorie holds a Certified Property Manager (CPM) certification from the Institute of Real Estate Management and has actively supported the organization through board leadership positions in both Las Vegas and Portland.
Like most Oregon natives, Valorie enjoys spending her free time outdoors. She loves heading to the beach or the mountains when she can, and she always enjoys spending time with her family.
