Valerie Meszaros

Administrative Assistant

I grew up on Long Island in Manhasset and have lived in Huntington for the last thirty years. In between I lived for a time in Manhattan. During my college years at SUNY at New Paltz, I managed to do some traveling for which I developed a lifelong passion, enjoying the diversity of different cultures and natural environments.

Over time I worked in law firms and corporations in Manhattan and Long Island. Subsequently I spent years editing, writing and designing a series of self-healing books based on Taoist practices. For years I facilitated groups, published a newsletter, and was a fundraiser for a mother’s center, and I have continued this type of rewarding work as a PTA board member for eleven years.

My husband is a concept design engineer who was born and raised in Hungary. We have a son who is in high school. He is a cellist with the Long Island Youth Orchestra. For four years he attended the Dolan DNA Learning Center summer camps.

I enjoy reading, writing, art and music, running and hiking. My son and I have hiked the Tour du Mont Blanc; it doesn’t get better than that.
