In addition to her corporate job, Valaencia is a blogger & the producer of a weekly radio show called Best You Journey on Amazing 102.5 FM.
Valaencia created Glittered in Goals because she saw a need to help women reach their fullest potential. After battling an eating disorder from her teen years to early twenties, she understands first hand how hard and isolating life can feel at times.
With her faith and a strong support system, she was able to overcome her struggles. Valaencia vowed to use her life as a ministry and help support other people as they overcome their challenges. She believes that we should not simply have goals, but do the work to turn those GOALS into GROWTH.
