When she was 6, Valeria knew she wanted to play golf for a living. She was an accomplished junior golfer, crowned South American Champion twice, and won several national titles in her home country. Valeria became pregnant at 18 and feared her dream would never become a reality. After a move to the U.S., and nine years without picking up a club, this mother of three got back in the game by chance.

She began by working at a golf resort to get out of the house and earn a little extra money. However she quickly grew tired of watching customers look down on her as if she knew nothing about the golf. This motivated her pick up the clubs and play again. She worked her way onto the course, first as an instructor and then as the founder and director of a successful junior golf academy.

Valeria has made appearances on The Golf Channel's "The Big Break III", "Golf Academy Live", co-hosted "Top Shelf", and hosted "All-Access" a behind the scenes look of "Big Break IV" in Scotland. She has also starred in the series "Golf with Style" which was a travel and leisure reality show in Hawaii, Canoan, and West Virgina.
