"Keep your mind grounded in the art of possible."

Valerie Mock has made a study of how people make choices — and how those choices can be influenced by motivating certain behaviors and outcomes. Adept at digesting, synthesizing, adapting, and applying new information, she enjoys sharing knowledge and experience to help others explore opportunities that may have previously seemed out of reach.

Valerie is an adroit negotiator, change-maker, and team builder. Her experience in change management and project delivery includes roles at Anuva Wines, Booz Allen Hamilton and Knowesis, where she led a team charged with assessing a billion-dollar merger. With a passion for travel, she has visited more than 25 countries and time spent living in Argentina and Italy. Valerie holds a master’s degree in international economics and international relations from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies and a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Santa Clara University.
