Val joined the Caster team in November 2018 as Account Coordinator shortly after graduating from the University of Rhode Island with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies and a focus on Writing & Rhetoric. Before working for Caster, Val tutored at URI’s Writing Center and worked as a part-time Barista.
Val’s interest in helping her peers become better writers came from her experience in helping International students at URI work on their English writing and speaking. Prior to working as a writing tutor, Val was a Peer Ambassador for URI’s International Center. In this position, she stood as both an advocate for inbound exchange students and promoted study abroad to outbound students at URI. Upon returning from her cultural experience studying abroad in Thailand, a nontraditional location, Val wanted to share the value of living a life beyond the borders of the United States. On behalf of the International Center, she gave presentations to her peers on the importance of recognizing different cultures.
Being a Connecticut native, Val is an avid lover of the Summer and Fall. During these seasons, you can find her at the beach, hiking, bike riding, or rollerblading on the William C. O’Neill Bike Path. She is excited to reside in the Ocean State of Rhode Island as she settles into her career at Caster.
