ABOUT Valerie Motis

Senior-level communications professional with a passion for science and technology! Consumer electronics, software, biotech, gaming, exploration, education -- all things I understand and can translate into terms that spark excitement in others. My career began in medical research and pivoted to scientific writing. From there, I moved on to journalism, writing about health and fitness and even dabbling in sports writing for Padres and Chargers Magazines. I found my way to healthcare PR, leading programs for medical practices and healthcare systems large and small before making the leap to technology. As an in house leader for gaming, edutainment, IoT, enterprise software and consumer electronics companies, I've created and implemented comprehensive promotional plans that generated not only media and consumer interest, but fueled corporate financial growth. On the agency side, I've applied my creativity and enthusiasm to activations for industry giants and startups alike. I'm a business leader with a proven track record of managing global, cross-functional teams while mentoring individuals and spurring them to excellence. A self-proclaimed geek, I have an abiding love for gadgets, learning new things, the scientific method and pop culture. With in house, agency and journalistic experience, I understand communications from all angles. My skills include: - Global Team/Agency Management - Creative Planning/Strategic Counsel - Positioning/Message Development - Executive Communications: Speech Writing/Media Training - Media Relations - Crisis Communications - Event Production -Content Creation - Earned, Paid and Social Media
