Valerie in Hogsmeade

Hi there!

I’m Valerie Marino, a journalist based in Durham, N.C., who went to Walt Disney World on vacation and turned it into a job. I’ve written about theme parks and travel for Condé Nast Traveler, CNN, Mic, and more.

When I’m not riding rollercoasters or debating the merits of various forms of butterbeer, I’m the associate director of marketing and digital communications at Duke Law School.
