Chief Revenue Officer
Valerie is the CRO for Auxana Inc, overseeing business development and growth strategy. She has an extensive background in Legal SaaS, serving Big Law and corporations in Silicon Valley. A firm believer in customer experience, she sees a company’s network as partners in the journey, rather than a number on a pipeline. Through this, she has learned that leveraging that relationship is the quickest way to drive successful product development and customer loyalty.
Graduating with a Business degree and advanced concentrations in Marketing and PR from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Valerie launched her career in the San Francisco Legal Tech space. She joined a young eDiscovery company as a Project Manager where she learned the ropes. Her ‘people skills’ quickly transitioned her into a Customer Success role, and later into Sales Management where she truly thrived.
After taking a short sabbatical to start her family, Valerie was introduced to Beth and the friendship was immediate. After planning a market revolution over a glass of wine, she joined the OG founding team, and off they went. She enjoys applying her degree to her practice, managing the Brand and Marketing team, as well as contributing to the growth and future iterations of the Auxana ecosystem.
In her “free time”, Valerie enjoys trying to stay active with her amazing husband, two toddlers, two French Bulldogs and two tortoises (who actively eat and sleep). They are getting settled in the Valley and love entertaining friends, supporting the local entrepreneur community, and traveling back to California to visit family.
