“Where can I buy your book?” A question I’ve been asked for years. I don’t have a book. However, I’m happy to announce I’m currently working on one.

While I believe anything that is truth has been spoken since the dawn of man, I am ready to add my voice and perspective.


My goal with this website is to share simple musings that when applied make my days more inspiring, fulfilling, and fun. I hope they do for you as well.

Oh, Miss Val, your super fan is SUPER excited that you’ll have your own book! I can’t wait to read it and share it with others. Those around me can’t help but be influenced by you because I certainly am. 😉 So much love, your adopted Bruin and Super Fan. 💙💛

I’m so excited to read your daily or weekly inspirations. You are one of my role model and though we only met briefly when I was a baby coach at Scats many years ago, you have always been an inspiration to me as a coach and choreographer!

Brilliant idea my friend! Look forward to hearing more from you. Lots of love.

Miss Val you have always been an inspiration to me, now even more so! Iam a 13 year and 3 year survivor, currently living with cancer in my lungs. I continue to love watching you coach at UCLA, especially during the floor routines.

available to help you reconnect with friends, even OLD ones! Cannot wait to read your musings. Maybe you’ll even quote q little Elton John every now and then. 😘
