Valerie Van Brocklin

Described by Calibre Press as "the indisputable master of enter-train-ment," and by The Last Frontier's largest newspaper as "a small person with a big presence, a dynamo," Valerie Van Brocklin is an internationally sought speaker, trainer and noted author who doesn't know she's small. She combines a dynamic presentation style with years of experience as a state and federal prosecutor, where her trial work received national media attention on ABC's Primetime Live, the Discovery Channel's Justice Files, in USA Today, The National Enquirer and Redbook. In addition to her personal appearances, Val appears on television, radio, and the internet, and in newspapers, magazine articles and books. Val is married to a very understanding man with whom she shares four remarkable daughters and their families. When she's not working, Val can be found flying her airplane with a shotgun, a fly rod, her retriever and high aspirations.
