Valerie Reinke (she/her/hers)

For the last 20 years, Valerie has served in a series of faith formation roles in Episcopal churches in California, Texas, and Washington state. As Canon Missioner for Faith Formation (35 & Under) for the Diocese of Olympia, she plans retreats, conferences, workshops, gatherings, and, yes, pilgrimages, that bring together children and families, youth, and young adults, as well as the wonderful people who minister to them. She lives on an island in the Puget Sound with her husband and sweet puppy (the kids are now away at college!), and she is an occasional contributing writer for Bainbridge Island Magazine. She loves travel, hot yoga, reading, and pickleball.
