Valerie lives on the Southside (Greenwood) with her husband Greg. They are parishioners at Our Lady of the Greenwood Parish. Valerie enjoys travel and spending time with her family.
She is the new Director of Underwriting and Development replacing Barb Brinkman who has retired. Valerie has been with the Archdiocese of Indianapolis for nearly 29 years, the last 17 with Catholic Charities Indianapolis culminating in the role of Director of Development. She served as the first Coordinator of Youth Ministry at St. Barnabas and worked as Administrative Assistant at Roncalli High School for Joe Hollowell as he transitioned from Principal to President.
Catholic Radio Indy airs both national and local programming pertaining to our Catholic faith. Valerie's job is to spread the word of Catholic Radio's existence and how to listen as well as to secure underwriting and sponsorships in order to continue the work of our non-profit station. The ultimate goal is to obtain a transmitter or station to cover broadcast of the entire Indianapolis metro area.
