At Alderwood, she was social convener and involved in many activities. Upon graduation she started her career in Nursing taking her training in The Civic Hospital in Ottawa in 1965, completing her RN in 1968. She met Ken Fowlston on September 9, 1977 they married on April 12, 1980. Valerie also worked at Beeton Manor from 1984 to 1989 when residing in the Tottenham, Ontario area.

After Tottenham, she moved our home to Paudash Lake at the "Ratherbe" to enjoy the nature and gardening that she loved so dearly.
