About Us

All About Emergency Response Training (AAERT)

I believe in empowering others to be independent in all ways possible for them. When I reach out to another to educate, it’s not because they’re missing knowledge, it’s because the knowledge I have to share will add dimension and skill to the gifts they already have.   When I teach I am also a sponge, learning from the exchange of life experiences.
Knowledge is a river that flows any way necessary to keep moving. I am a conduit.
It is my drive to keep that river moving well, meandering so all who wish to gain and contribute have a chance to do so. Once it is begun, I am not the one to stop it. 

In love and light, Val.
