about

valerie reilly

I am passionate about growing my faith, spending time with my family, America, art and design, traveling, writing, adoption, and mental wellness. Growing up, you could find me in the art and computer rooms spending my free periods designing websites, painting, and drawing. I have worked as a freelance graphic designer since 2003 and recently focused my work in education.
