Vallejo has taught more than 50,000 students nation- wide over the past 15 years. She has more than 30 years of experience as a grantwriting instructor, grantwriter and consultant. As a professional grantwriter, she has raised more than $30 million from government, foundation, cor- porate and individual funding sources for diverse clients across the nation.
