Valerie’s method not only increases the singer’s range and technical ability but also keeps the voice healthy while maintaining the singer’s signature sound. Working hand in hand with doctors at the forefront of their field to rehabilitate clients who suffer from nodules, polyps, paralyzed chords, and vocal dysphonia, Valerie has given new hope to clients who faced the possibility they may never recover. Valerie’s journey started about thirty years ago when she was diagnosed with debilitating nodules on her vocal cords.
Having sung all her life, the idea of not being able to sing again was not an option. She devoted herself to finding out what causes vocal trauma and how to prevent it. For over two decades, Valerie’s personal mission of Vocal Health For Life has transformed the lives of many successful artists working today, including: Sam Smith, Olivia Rodrigo, The Chainsmokers, Sia, 5SOS, Britney Spears, Jeff Bridges, and Noah Cyrus, just to name a few. She also prepares actors’ voices for stage, television, and film, including Jessica Chastain (The Eyes of Tammy Faye), Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water), Tom Ellis (Lucifer), the cast of Nashville (ABC & CMT), and FOX sportscaster Joe Buck.
