Val finished his Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy at Fontys University of Applied Sciences in Eindhoven, Netherlands in 2016. He moved to the French part of Switzerland to work for one year. After, his then-girlfriend got a job offer in South Korea, and he decided to give Asia a chance and try new things. One year later, Val followed his American now-wife to marry and settle in San Diego. Covid and the complicated immigration process meant that Val had to put his career aside and work in other fields for a few years. He is now happy to finally be back in his field and help people to get back on their feet.
