Honoree: Valerie Powers
Honored by: Edwards Lifesciences
From the time Valerie arrived at Edwards everyone could tell she was not only a focused and capable woman, but also had a drive to work for the greater good of others. This drive is perfectly aligned with Edwards Lifesciences mission of the improvement of patients’ lives. Contributing to the mission is one of the ways she has shown herself as such a valuable asset to our company and to THV. She is dedicatedly involved in the Strengthen Our Community Committee, particularly in the Heart Walk event in where she is the team captain for THV. She is involved with Edwards work with Habitat for Humanity and the American Red Cross. Last year she led a THV crimper project,
which took old crimpers that were no longer needed and donated the parts to a group called Child Creativity Lab.
