WPF is thrilled to welcome one of our sisters, Valda Ford, to kick off 2021. Valda brings her signature program to WPF to help us all start the New Year “Living, Laughing, and Loving”.
An active member of WPF for more than 6 years, Valda is an award-winning speaker, Registered Nurse and Public Health expert who has worked in over 50 countries on six continents to improve health, decrease vulnerability and increase access to care. From war zones and refugee camps to isolated rural areas in the USA Valda works to develop sustainable programs that help women lift their communities.
While working at one of many refugee camps in Africa and Asia between 2004 and 2007 Valda discovered that she was very good at working but she was failing miserably at living. As she watched people in the worst of circumstances, she realized that nothing is promised and planning to “do it” LATER, is a terrible idea. Sometimes there is no LATER. Motivated by the good and bad around her she put together her signature program “Living, Laughing and Loving”. Once again, this year, she has been reminded that putting self first is a necessary step to surviving in these trying times.
