Valerie Wong

Educator and Finance Professional

 Valerie Wong has a passion for mentoring, education, and community building initiatives, and that is why she is so attracted to CuriOdyssey's work. She goes to CuriOdyssey on a regular basis with her 5-year-old daughter and 1-year-old son and loves watching her children engage and learn from everything that CuriOdyssey has to offer. She frequently plans meet-ups there, promoting CuriOdyssey to other families in the Bay Area.

Valerie is a 500-hour certified yoga instructor, and has taught in the Bay Area for the past decade, currently at Equinox in San Mateo. Following her passion for education, Valerie has taken Montessori training and has been implementing this approach with her children from infancy. Valerie previously worked at BlackRock as an Equity Index Strategist and spent almost eight years at MSCI as part of the Index Client Coverage team. She began her career as an Auditor at KPMG and then worked as a Financial Analyst at HSBC.

Born and raised in Panama, she is fluent in both Spanish and English. She has served on the board for several nonprofit organizations, including as Treasurer of St. Paul's Nursery School in Burlingame and as President of Latinos in Finance.
