Valerie has been a Jayhawk since 2013 when she came to KU to pursue a B.S. in Chemical Engineering and a minor in music. She is now a PhD candidate in Chemical Engineering with her research focus on the interfacial stability of therapeutic proteins. Valerie has enjoyed being a GEA Ambassador since 2019 as it has allowed her to interact with a wide range of engineering disciplines, be an advocate for mental health in engineering, and has allowed her to help provide academic opportunities such as professional development for both undergraduate and graduate students. In her free time, Valerie enjoys going on walks, reading, and finding new restaurants to eat at.
