Born in Ohio, Valerie Bibee moved with her family to a farm in Tennessee as a teenager and has considered herself a Southerner at heart ever since. She attended Draughon’s Junior College of Business where she received a degree in computer programming and then went on to Nashville State Community College for some accounting classes. Before joining Maxwell, Valerie had more than 20 years of accounting and administration experience in the Nashville area.
Valerie was laid off from Tradebe Environmental Services in 2020 due to the pandemic and joined Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal several months later as a staff accountant. Valerie is part of Maxwell’s three-person finance team, working to keep the company’s books in order. She does everything from routine banking and office management to taxes and OSHA tracking. She works with Maxwell’s commercial roofing clients to make sure that billing runs smoothly throughout the course of a project.
Why Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc. Stands Out
For Valerie, the best part of her job is the team she gets to work with. Because Maxwell is a small, family-owned business, everyone at the company works together as a team. She says each of the Maxwells are always accessible and ready to help with any problems that may arise.
“I love the people I work with,” she says. “They make me look forward to coming to work each day.”
At home, Valerie has one son, a dog, and four cats to keep her company. She likes reading, fishing, and cooking. She is also an amateur photographer. In her free time, she loves spending time at the lake with her family. Among her family, she’s well-known for telling her signature bad jokes. She never misses the chance to play Scrabble with her mother, who still beats her every single time.
