Valorie McGovern

Valorie McGovern

Valorie is originally from Powder Springs, GA, where she grew up with her parents, younger brother and a variety of pets. Her college years earned her an Associate of Fine Arts degree in 1993 from Young Harris College, as well as both a Bachelor of Science in Education in 1996 and a Master of Fine Arts in Fabric Design in 2001, from UGA. Valorie worked as a Veterinary Technician throughout college, finding a true passion to help animals and the love of medicine a strong force in her life. Continuing with that love of medicine, she went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and RN license in 2012, working for 6 years as a Public Health Nurse in Athens and Oglethorpe County before resigning to focus on the needs of her 4 children. At that time, Valorie began volunteering at local animal shelters and became a foster mom for a local animal rescue. It was during a vet visit with some foster kittens that the opportunity to return to the job she had always loved presented itself, and she joined the Sycamore team as a part-time veterinary technician. Valorie has lived in Lexington, GA with her husband, Kevin, since 1998. They reside there now with their four children (Evie, Oliver, Niall, and Liam), 5 dogs, 8 (maybe soon to be 10) cats and any number of foster animals, depending on the day.
