Her innate gift to work with numbers presents Valerie with the foresight to keep the business on track financially and the ability to preserve her father and grandfather’s vision — to make King Jewelers the South Shore’s #1 jewelry destination. Her passion to preserve this vision as the company evolves and grows is her greatest accomplishment.
