Valorie is a great coach, but an even better person. From the moment I met her, I knew that she cared about me as a person and not just as an athlete. Throughout my four years of being on the UCLA Gymnastics team, Valorie emphasized qualities such as integrity, leadership and teamwork. What she cared about most was that we graduated far better people than we were starting out.
What I realized was that by becoming the best person I can be, I also became the best athlete I can be. Her focus is always on the athletes, whose success she ultimately defines not by winning but by growth as well-rounded human beings. Young gymnasts are suddenly faced with instant freedom and stringent academic demands. Valorie has been able to take gymnasts from diverse backgrounds and motivation levels and teach them to love the sport again. She is a passionate professional.

We enjoy competing against them because it always brings together two of the best teams in the country and is a positive experience for the athletes, the coaches and the fans.

She has built the program into a model that others in the nation want to emulate.
