Bella SPCA is very happy to announce that Valerie Aubert has accepted the position of Executive Director for the organization and will assume her new role on December 3, 2018.

Valerie brings to Bella almost 20 years of nonprofit experience having served as Executive Director for Rebuilding Together OKC, Executive Director for the Police Athletic League, and Vice President of Development & Communications for NewView Oklahoma.

In addition to an exceptional track record as a highly effective leader with a history of growing organizations and increasing their reach into the community, Valerie also has a passion for saving animals. Her own dog is a rescue dog that found a loving home with Valerie’s family which makes Bella’s mission very personal to her.

Eric McCune, Bella SPCA Co-Founder says, “The moment I met Valerie and listened to her speak, I knew she was the one to lead our organization. Her passion for helping people and helping animals is obvious and contagious. I imagine Valerie being just as comfortable speaking before a group of donors as I do working in the field to help the animals and people of our community.”

In addition to overseeing a staff that manages the day to day operations, Valerie will also work hand in hand with the Board of Directors to develop and implement a strategic plan that will expand current programs and create new programs to further Bella’s reach into the community.
