Her entire education was in private schools, starting from pre-school till sophomore year of high school, when she transferred to public school where she graduated. Val has three dogs, a cat and a pig. Three times a week she goes to the boxing ring. She also does strength and lifting and does cardio and footwork with the boxing. As a person who enjoys food, Val is a really good cook. Her favorite meal is chicken gnocchi soup. In five years she sees herself back to Nebraska, finishing vet school or Marine Biology.
