Duncan doesn't have ocean front property like San Diego or the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas and Valerie Smith couldn't be happier about that. She's lived in all three communities, but only Duncan has truly become home for her.

Smith, a Duncan town council member, moved to the community of less than 800 people in 2013. She grew up in San Diego, but moved to Las Vegas as a teen. She began a career in banking in Vegas and By the age of 30, she'd purchased her first home and was deeply involved in volunteerism. She remembers feeling restless and toying with the idea of renting out her home and traveling, but she became reacquainted with a young man she'd met while in high school and they fell in love.
