Valerie Vaughn

Certified Financial Fiduciary

During the late seventies and eighties, Valerie established successful careers in international marketing, first in the recreational boating industry and later, in the oil-and-steel industry. Following an oil-industry slump, she pursued her Master’s Degree in Architecture and began her second career as a licensed architect, including serving for ten years as a Facilities Project Manager for the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in the Texas Medical Center.

Expanding upon her own experiences during the "Great Recession", Valerie began studying personal finances. She went on to acquire her Texas state insurance license and certifications in order to provide services ranging from tax-deferred annuities and Social Security income strategies to life insurance, long term care, and Medicare. She is now dedicating her time to helping others create their own secure and stable futures through her affiliation with Legacy Protection Assurance, LLC.
