In life, we dream of that “perfect life”; some may even fantasize about it. My day started as any other, and little did I know it was about to take me places I’ve never imagined. My awareness to others, as well as my own life, is about to blossom and allow me to embrace all of the things I simply wouldn't take the time to before. My name is Valencia Dotson; in my journey, I have been inspired to take on a new name to compliment the old one. Ve Ce Dottie is the name that came about as I discovered an inner strength and strong desire to inspire, uplift, encourage, and enlighten others. I am wife to a wonderful husband, the mother of two beautiful school-aged girls and one phenomenal college-aged daughter. I have worked for the federal government for twenty-one years of my life. Day in and day out, I punch that time clock for the nine to five, hustle and bustle just like any other. There’s nothing big or famous about me other than my love for God, of life, and my family.
