The Author shares her story:

I am an elementary school teacher, author, speaker, and coach. Having struggled with anxiety early on in life and finding peace in the midst of it, my mission is to bring hope to people who struggle with fears and excessive worry. My background in Psychology and Medicine have come in handy as I sought to understand this challenge. I attribute the peace I experience while going through stress and challenges in life, from my relationship with Jesus Christ, my Savior and Lord and the power of the Holy Spirit. I enjoy spending time with my family and share my love for traveling and photography with my husband, Sal. Our favorite place to visit are gardens, and one can find the gallery in my camera filled with pictures of flowers. I am the founder of Flowers for Elders, an organization that delivers flower arrangements to patients. I value the friendships I have developed throughout the years and have built my community around the belief that “true friendships don’t fade away, they linger forever.” I live with Sal in Sacramento, CA. We have two kids and a son-in-love.

Cecille Valoria is a true blue Sillimanian, finishing her Early Childhood 1964, Elementary 1966, High School 1977 and Bachelors of Science in Psychology 1981, at Silliman. Cecille is also an active member of the Silliman University Alumni Association of Northern California.
