Myrna Valenzuela was born and raised in L.A. She had dreams of becoming a CPA for one of the Big Six accounting firms. (They're now the Big Four). However, after attending an accounting course at USC campus during her senior year in high school, she realized as much as she loved numbers it wasn't her passion. She attended LA Valley College and studied Business and Economics. After holding a few office jobs in the San Fernando Valley, she joined Arlene Thornton & Associates as their Receptionist. It was there that she learned all about the business and three years later was promoted to On-camera Assistant. Shortly after moved over to the Voiceover Department joining the most amazing team in the business. She was promoted to Agent and after 15+yrs in the business feels there still so much to learn in this ever changing business we call Show! Myrna is bilingual, speaking both English and Spanish which makes her invaluable in communicating with the Spanish market in this ever expanding marketplace. During time off, Myrna takes every opportunity to travel with friends and family. She’s a Green Bay Packers fan and a competitive Olympic Weightlifter. Best of all, she’s a fur-mom to three adorable felines.
