After graduating in Law from Southampton University, she worked in Athens, Greece, as a lawyer for 12 years, the last 6 years specializing in yacht ownership matters. When she re-located in the South of France and started a family, joining the PYA revealed new aspects in her yachting related knowledge and experience.

Valia enjoys particularly anything that has to do with crafting, roller skating and the sea. Her favourite summer destination is anywhere close to a sunny sea shore and especially Greece, for its magical beaches, hot sunny weather and people, and food experiences.
