City of Grandview, MO Communications Manager
Valarie Poindexter, City of Grandview, MO
After nearly 20 years as a journalist in television news in cities all over the U.S., I finally became a mother and needed a somewhat normal schedule. My work needs to serve a higher purpose than just financial, so I chose local government as an opportunity to serve, inform, and educate. In November 2015, the City of Grandview, MO hired me as Communications Coordinator and in 2017, promoted me to Communications Manager. I’m a graduate of University of Missouri- Kansas City and proud volunteer for Grandview C-4 School District and Grandview Assistance Program.
