    Valerie Height joined Grief’s Journey in December 2018. Valerie holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Nebraska at Kearney and a Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. A majority of her career has focused on work with the geriatric population with an emphasis on long-term care and hospice. Valerie found her calling in the grief world when she served as the Bereavement Coordinator for a local hospice agency. It was during this time that her passion for supporting the bereaved and educating others on grief took flight. Her passion moved her to develop grief-related programs such as a children’s camp, grief symposium and the expansion of support groups. Valerie received various awards for her work in hospice, including the 2016 Nebraska Hospice Association Shining STAR Award for Program Development. She has been deeply impacted by sudden and traumatic loss herself and strives to ensure that all individuals have a safe place for hope and healing in the midst of grief.
