Valarie Hjort worked in the insurance segment of the financial services industry for the better part of two decades before she joined EP Wealth Advisors in 2022. In her previous positions, she performed a variety of roles which developed her experience working with agents, partners, brokerage directors and other staff to meet client requirements for insurance coverage. This background enabled Valarie to hone her ability to interpret customer needs and then go out of her way to meet them. She enjoys working in wealth management because of the daily opportunities it offers to utilize her highly detail-oriented skills. Valarie spends most of her free time with her husband, teenage son and their dog. They enjoy family outings to the dog park, trying new restaurants and going to the movies. Valarie also loves to shop. And when she finds a spare moment to herself, she enjoys immersing herself in a good book.
