"Wrynn’s position as a financial wellness advocate took her into the community to motivate and educate individuals about their finances," said Kristina Derkos, senior vice president of people at RCU. "She also led that effort internally, helping our own employees achieve their goals and dreams. Expanding that role into other initiatives will come naturally, and I can’t wait to see the many ways in which she’ll empower our people."

Valentine has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Sonoma State University. In addition to working extensively with local nonprofits and schools, she serves on the program coordinating committee for the Family Self-Sufficiency Program of Sonoma County and Santa Rosa.
