Val Curtis (@TechTalkGal on Twitter) is a Social Media Consultant and Digital Strategist. She is the founder of Treehouse Creative Digital Solutions in Friday Harbor, WA.
A few years ago, Val Curtis quickly learned the importance of putting as many tools as possible in her personal tech toolbox when a college Physics TA offered her free tutoring if she could teach him how to use Excel. She hadn't learned it just yet, but she knew she could and she did.
Throughout the years as a Marine Ecology & Ornithology Lab Assistant, Whale Watch Tour Office Manager, Pre-service Teacher Educator, Middle School Math / Science / Tech Teacher, Web Developer, Digital Marketer, Entrepreneur, Instructional Technology Coordinator and Social Media Manager her thirst for learning, testing, and implementing the "newest" tools in technology wove it's way into every job.
Val has worked and consulted with dozens of entrepreneurs, businesses and nonprofits around the globe through her online magazine, BonBon Break, which she started in 2012. Partnerships that began as simple paid posts turned into consulting sessions where she taught large brands how to integrate themselves into the influencer space.
In addition to speaking at blogging conferences, women in business groups and conducting training events for teachers, Val has also been the featured speaker at CyberSafety for Families community events.
Since launching Treehouse Creative Digital Solutions in 2019, Val has been assisting businesses and non-profits to share their stories and put their best foot forward in the digital world.
