One thing that can’t escape our attention is Valorie’s bi-weekly appearance on CNN’s ”Reclaim Your Career” segment, where she shares her expertise on the theme. She also appears regularly on Headline News as a guest.
Over the years, Valorie served as Heart & Soul Magazine’s Editor-at-Large and co-host of two national TV shows, including Aspiring Women, which won national Emmy nominations twice, and The Potter’s Touch with T.D Jakes, a popular show whose viewership runs far and wide.

Ms. Burton’s appointment to the Governor’s Commission for Women in Texas is yet another thing that shows how bright her star has shone. She served in the commission between 2001 and 2003, a feat many successful women still lack in their profiles. Before founding The Coaching and Positive Psychology (CAPP) Institute, Valorie had a PR and marketing agency, where she served as a communications strategist for Fortune 500 companies and professional services firms.
Academic-wise, one could confidently say that Valorie has eaten books if her two Master’s degrees in journalism and applied positive psychology are anything to go by.
