Leadership is a powerful tool that is the result of education, experience and skill. In 2015, Ms. Valbrun founded The Valbrun Consulting Group to share the skills and talents gathered over 25 years of experience in education and industry so that others can experience the transformational power of effective leadership.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela

Valbrun Consulting Group – The Torchbearers
Imagine navigating a new path. The destination is clear, but the road towards it is not. Without a light to illuminate the way, you will be confused, meandering, and lost. The odds of reaching your destination will be greatly diminished.
But what if you had a knowledgeable guide? Together, you could help each other find the way.
At The Valbrun Consulting Group, this is how we envision our mission – to be Torchbearers for those who wish to find their way toward organizational progress, personal growth, and anti-racist competence.
We light the way.
As the founder of this company, I benefited from the light that was provided by my parents. They came to the United States from Haiti with their children, their talents and their faith, and with those tools, they crafted a prosperous life for me and my siblings. I stand on their shoulders.
My first professional role as an educator allowed me to experience the gravity and responsibility of guiding young minds. But as my career and influence grew, so did my understanding. It is my obligation to act as my parents did, not only for my own child, but also for those who wish to grow. And the best way to do that is to create clear paths for others to follow.
As Torchbearers, we at The Valbrun Consulting Group, light pathways toward:
- A better understanding of self and self-actualization, so educators and professionals know from which point they are beginning;
- A greater sense of empathy to remove labels, stigmas, stereotypes and biases that prevent true progress;
- A larger capacity for collaboration and learning, where people can share and inform each other in transparent spaces;
- And a stronger embrace of what it means to be diverse, equitable and inclusive.
Our logo – the torch – symbolizes the light, fire and passion that drives us to do our best work. The torch represents an uncovering of what lurks in dark places, exposing fallacies and limiting philosophies to the truth. And most importantly, the torch is a beacon of hope, which inspires us all to strive for a better future for our children and ourselves.
Welcome to The Valbrun Consulting Group. Let’s walk together along a path to greatness.
