Originally born and raised in France, Valerie Grosman is now based in Cape Breton, Canada. Having previously worked with ILI for almost a decade, Valerie took some time away for adventuring and last year, found her way back to us as our Administrator. Her expertise includes organizational administration, budgeting, fund allocation, grant administration, accounts payable and receivable and general accounting. Valerie enjoys organizational challenges, streamlining processes, and takes pride in her essential role, assisting project teams with financial management, allowing them the ability to focus on the research and evaluation work at hand.
Valerie’s favorite free-choice learning activities include exploring ancient fiber arts primarily through the creation and application of plant-based dyes and stains. She is enjoying learning more about Acadian culture and finds herself delighting in the well-preserved memory of her small community.
