Valerie McKinney - "Live Each Day to the Fullest, Because...You Just Never Know"

Valerie McKinney -

Welcome to the latest episode of “I’m Frickin’ Lonely…”.

In this episode, my guest, Valerie McKinney shares her story of how life as she knew it was completely upended two years ago! We hear about Val’s path through life…her love of manufacturing and assembly lines and how it parlayed into a pharma career, her wonderful family, and zest for living.

But Valerie bravely shares with us the horrible diagnosis she received during the pandemic and how she’s doggedly coping.

She tells of how quarantining during the pandemic was actually a help to her, allowing her to gradually come to grips with, and then share with others, her diagnosis of ALS.

I am humbled and honored that she has shared her story here on this podcast. I am also in awe of how she continues to think of the feelings of others, how she finds joy in giving to others, and how she still feels and expresses gratitude for her life, family, friends and love.

Please listen and learn…particularly to Valerie’s advice to live each day to the fullest and don’t put off following your dreams.
