Name: Cheryl Valdez

Job: Social Media Specialist / Nosler

Bio: Cheryl's a California native turned Oregon enthusiast. She manages social media strategy for local Bend business, Nosler, and prior to moving to Oregon three years ago, enjoyed a career in the entertainment industry working as a publicist for both Universal Studios Hollywood and the Seattle International Film Festival. She loves her dog, hiking, hunting and 10 Barrel's Cucumber Crush.

What is your favorite film and why? Without a doubt, "Big Fish." I could watch this movie over and over again and the adventure would feel different every time. So many interesting characters and imaginative stories with distinct moral and life lessons.

Why is film important to a community? Movies play a significant role in the development of people. They offer an escape, an opportunity to learn and experience new places, people, and scenarios—beneficial to the fabric of any community.

Favorite film character? Nathan Lane in "The Birdcage"

My life as a film: I'd say the themes in "Wild" are most relevant to my life. I've hit life's reset button many times over the last few years. I strongly relate with taking leaps from comfort zones and leaving everything familiar behind for new adventures and opportunities to grow. Doesn't hurt that the author/ lead character and I share the same name.
