Metropolitan Fine Arts Center became a part of Val’s world in 2000 when her daughter started dancing. She was determined to be a part of the organization, so she began volunteering: constructing props, building sets, and learning stage management. While enjoying her experience in the performing arts, she worked full-time for EDS Corporation in their Government Relations office in Washington, DC, until her retirement in 2008. Val then became a full-time member of the Metro team. After 11 years of dancing with Metro, her daughter began creating her future at James Madison University, but Val has stayed on to continue her work with the organization. She currently lives in Alexandria, Virginia, with her husband, two dogs and two cats.
