Valerie Ann Vuolo was born on March 8, 1984, at St. Mary's Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Charles Vuolo and Diana Vuolo. She was the couple's first child, and they went on to have two more children after her.
Valerie's twin sister, Angela, was stillborn at birth.
Valerie began playing the violin when she was 4 years old.
Her parents raised her and her siblings in Downingtown, Pennsylvania, where they were close to much of their extended family.
As a child, the family had a set time for breakfast and dinner, which all family members attended. These meals also included daily family devotions.
It is assumed that Valerie was homeschooled until at least 11th grade, like her brother Jeremy.
In 2006, Valerie graduated from the Hartt School of Music with her Bachelor of Music Degree in Violin Performance.
Valerie performs regularly with Avalare Strings in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Alfred James Band in Ardmore, Pennsylvania, and Originaire in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
In August 2012, Valerie began working as an audio producer and engineer at Silverstone Studios in Ardmore, Pennsylvania.
Valerie offers private lessons for violin, viola, piano, comprehensive music theory, and ear-training in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Cape May, New Jersey.
Valerie often helps out with her mother Diana's charity SWAN 4 Kids in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. She plays the violin at their recitals.
