Our Team

MEET KARA – CHIEF MARKETING OFFICER

As a faithful social media follower of Val Marie Paper for some time, I grew to love Val’s heart for encouraging and challenging women to grow in their faith while she gives them the practical tools to do so.

A former teacher and coach, I crave organization and efficiency and I’m excited to help bring those two things to the most important part of your life. I’m a Texas girl with a big heart for the community of people that God has placed me in, which includes you! My more immediate community includes my husband of 3 years, Dane, our sweet Avery girl, and our ambivalent cat, Willow.

 

MEET JANE – SHOP MANAGER

I’ve known Val (casual acquaintance) since high-school, or maybe even earlier, and was THRILLED to find that she’d created the product I’d been searching everywhere for! VMP journals have been an integral part of my prayer-life for years now, and I’m excited to be a member of the fun/uplifting team that provides these practical tools to others.

I’m a speech therapist and researcher by training, working part-time in the medical field. My favorite person and I were married in 2009, and we are currently doing life with two wildly energetic kids and two (equally energetic) large dogs!

 

MEET BRANDI – SOCIAL MANAGER

Hey friends! Over the years, Val and the VMP team have been a constant encouragement in my life, providing practical tools to help me tether my heart to Jesus. I have a heart for women and an obsession with lists and I’m honored to be able to put those things to work with a team as we seek to walk with women in their journey through life and their faith.

Born and raised in Texas, I married my high school sweetheart and together we’re raising our four sweet babes. I love traditions, crafts and all things cozy and firmly believe there is magic in the everyday ordinary.
