Blackbird Bio: Valerie Townsend

Valerie-TownsandValerie Townsend comes into the café most mornings with a book, orders a slice of cranberry orange bread and a tea, and sits down to read.

Valerie is a retired teacher who spent more than 30 years working for Valparaiso Community Schools. Now she serves on the board of the Valparaiso Schools Foundation, enjoys knitting, and travels. She and a few of her fellow retirees recently spent a couple of weeks basking in the sun of Siesta Key, Florida. Sounds nice!

Valerie strongly prefers the Chicago Bears to the Green Bay Packers.

If she could have a superpower, she would choose invisibility because she’d love to “observe without being observed.” Good to know.

Thanks for being one of Blackbird Cafe's best customers and this week's Blackbird Bio, Valerie!
