Ms. Valenzuela Banker served in the United States Navy as a Quartermaster aboard the USS Howard (DDG83) from 2005-2009.

After discharge from the Navy, she served in sales and international sales roles for companies in the government contracting space and eventually decided to pursue her passion.
Ms. Valenzuela Banker’s passion along with her combination of strength, experience, and love of the military community is what drove her to buy Shore Solutions in January 2016.
