Valerie is the policy analyst for Stand for Health Freedom. She is a passionate advocate for health rights and family privacy. A mother of two with degrees in law and biochemistry, she guides advocates through complex health-rights policy. Her work is grounded by a love for American values and uncovering truth, and a passion for empowering others.

Valerie’s understanding of the value of freedom and health care choices has empowered her to keep her two boys alive and thriving. Her eldest son survived a rare and deadly cancer because her family was able to navigate medical care while holding onto values that were sometimes at odds with recommendations.

Valerie has been an advocate of parental rights particularly around birth and vaccines. She helped found the Birth Rights Bar Association.
