Chief of Staff
Valerie loves to solve problems and takes efficiency very seriously, but she would never let either of these qualities diminish her sense of humor.
She joined the Lippman Kanfer Family Foundation from the New York City Housing Authority and the Fund for Public Housing, where she focused on bringing strategic investments to public housing communities. She has also worked in policy development and analysis, advocacy, and social service provision.
Valerie holds a BA from Brandeis University and an MPP from the University of California, Berkeley. She lives in Brooklyn, but she values each of the boroughs equally.
