Lives in Chattanooga
Smith was born in Memphis, TN., learning pencil drawing at an early age from her uncle. Although life had thrown a curveball at an extensive art career, Valerie still finds time to paint, and is finally making her art dreams come true. Valerie is an assistant principal for Hamilton County Department of Education, and has been a highly effective educator for 19 years. She has a doctorate, EdD, in Leadership and Professional Studies. Her present works include various graphic designs and local projects, of which 3 logos are currently used and displayed by small Chattanooga businesses.
