Valerie Erb – Marketing and Social Media
Valerie Erb, one of Runway’s Marketing and Social Media personnel, is an officer candidate with the Army National Guard. When she is not maintaining this blog, working, or training, she is likely to be found at her home watching Netflix with her puppy or playing video games with her significant other. Like most passionate gamers, Valerie’s love of gaming came at an early age – from the very first time her fingers touched The Legend of Zelda and Mario onward.
Valerie has played a wide variety games but tends to gravitate more towards fantasy RPGs with the occasional FPS (Who can forget 007: Golden Eye and Halo?). Her favorite titles include Jade Empire, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Morrowind, Fable, and The Legend of the Dragoon (in no particular order). She has committed many years and countless hours to MUDs, specifically Imperian by Iron Realms Entertainment, and learned invaluable lessons from the experience, including a love of coding, politics, and leadership.
With a high drive for adventure and a passion for imagination, Valerie loves any aspect of fantasy. Whether it’s waiting for the newest Game of Thrones season, reading her favorite series “Rhapsody,” or LARPing with anyone she can coax to participate, she tries to incorporate fantasy into her daily life.
Valerie received a B.A. from Berea College in 2013 and is currently working on completing her commission to become an officer in the Army. When she grows up, she wants to be an elf.
