Unlock your learning potential
Hi, I'm Valerie!
Empowering You Through Learning
For nearly two decades, I've immersed myself in applied research and learning in the social sector. I believe deeply in unlocking the transformative power of learning and emergence through collaborative work. Mission Bloom is an invitation to co-create new paths to impact. How can intentional, collaborative learning become the catalyst for the change you aim to see?
Elizabeth P., Higher Ed Professional
"I found this coaching session — my first ever — to be tremendously useful, especially as I started a new role. Through a genuine desire to get to know me, my role, and my leadership style, Val offered insight that I quickly put into practice. The result is that I'm more confident, more self aware, and more proactive when setting professional goals, boundaries, and systems in place."
What I Offer
Strategic Consultation for Learning, Data, and Evaluation
I provide consultations on data and learning strategy to help you optimize your learning and development initiatives. I work collaboratively with you to identify outcomes, create actionable learning plans, and effectively map learning to strategy. Together, we create a plan to embed learning into your culture to capture stories of impact and continuous improvement.
Facilitation for Meaning-Making
Do you have a lot of data about your organization or your programs and just aren't sure where to begin? I facilitate insightful, actionable data meaning-making sessions to help you generate insights, create short and long term outcomes, and identify action plans to help you achieve your goals.
Leadership challenges exist at all stages of your career and are increasingly complex in the midst of societal challenges. I offer one-on-one sessions to help you deepen your leadership capabilities, with a focus on continual learning.
Data Visualization and Storytelling
Data alone is just a number. But crafted into a compelling narrative? It becomes a story that inspires. I'll help you breathe life into your data, making it both accessible and impactful.
Learning Culture Capability Development
Do you, your team, or your organization want to become more learning-centered? I provide learning facilitation services that are designed to help you develop new skills and knowledge. Through interactive and hands-on activities that are grounded in your work, you will have the opportunity to learn from and collaborate with others.
