About Valeria 
Valeria is passionate about helping parents cancel the mortgage on their kid’s future by showing them how to say no to college loan debt. After confirming that she wasn’t the only Mom concerned about positioning her teen daughter for a successful future, Valeria created the College With No Debt program.

The program’s simple structure is easy to follow and is based on Valeria’s experience of completing college with no debt, combined with a proven 4-step system that makes students the obvious choice to receive the best scholarships and grants. With scholarships covering more than 90% of her education costs, Valeria completed two degrees from Georgia Tech and Spelman College.

Because of her passion, she left a career spanning nearly 3 decades as a corporate engineering and marketing leader to support families. She loves working with teens and tweens, and has mentored middle and high school students in STEM programs across the United States. She will teach a college admissions test prep course at a Houston STEM-education center during the upcoming 2012-13 school year.

For two years, Valeria was a contributing writer of parenting articles for several Focus on the Family publications, and is the founder of the National Alliance of Moms with Teens & Tweens (a grass roots organization committed to making the teen years the best years of a parent’s life). Valeria is a member of the National Merit Scholar community along with leaders such as Evelyn Hammonds, Bill Gates, and Jeffrey Bezos.  the Founder of the National Alliance of Moms with Teens & Tweens, an association for parents committed to making the teen years the best years. The Alliance offers supportive resources, services, and workshops such as Childhood to Tween Transformation, Tween to Teen Transition, 4D Parenting Opportunities (re: Drugs, Drinking, Dating, and Deception), and Becoming a College Scholarship Magnet (PSAT Test Prep).  Read more about Val...
