She mentors feature writers who want to carve out a freelance writing career, and entrepreneurs and thought leaders who want to showcase their expertise in their own business book.

Her work has also appeared in publications such as Voyeur, Silver Kris, Australian Financial Review and The Age.

Before becoming a freelance writer 15 years ago, Valerie was features director for CLEO. For seven years, she was also the journalist behind the popular Enterprise blog on smh.com.au, theage.com.au, brisbanetimes.com.au, watoday.com.au, canberratimes.com.au and businessday.com.au.
