Valerie Sokolosky is an outstanding executive coach and servant leader!  She took me to the next level personally leading to a promotion professionally. Her tools and techniques allowed me to get to know myself and my strengths as well as my opportunities for improvement while simultaneously building up my confidence and self-esteem. She has a wonderful way of getting to know you so that she can direct you to maximize yourself!
