With over 20 years of public health and non-profit experience, Valeria ‘Val’ exemplifies the necessary community-driven leadership for building health communities. Born and raised in New Jersey and a product of immigrants from the Dominican Republic and El Salvador, Valeria knows personally the challenges of growing up in a low-income community with limited resources. It has been her mission to advocate, spearhead and help in efforts that improve communities and help families thrive.
Valeria’s career has primarily focused on helping with efforts in the rising of Camden, New Jersey, where she held leadership roles at the YMCA of Burlington and Camden Counties and Cooper’s Ferry Partnership. For 10 years, Valeria provided leadership to the New Jersey Partnership for Healthy Kids and Get Healthy Camden initiatives, a collaborative of multiple-sector partners seeking to advance policy, systems and environmental changes that create equity and sustainability for a healthier Camden. Her advocacy for community improvement covered multiple elements, or Social Determinants of Health, that impact everyday lives of Camden residents such as advancing school wellness, increasing access to open space for physical activity, expanding opportunities to address food insecurity, developing plans for improving access to transportation and addressing workforce development opportunities for the under- and unemployed, all of which was equity-centered. As a community coach for the New Jersey Healthy Communities Network, a state-wide funding network of coaching for improving communities, Valeria provided formal technical assistance to other New Jersey communities that have started to implement similar efforts across her home state.
