Honored by: Edwards Lifesciences
The Operations Leadership Team gathered in November to complete its yearly strategic and business alignment process. Looking for a team-building activity that would also connect our team with the local community, we asked Yvonne for help. She selected, prepared, participated, and led the activity at the Southwest Community Center in Santa Ana. Our team really enjoyed the experience; from packing food and gift donations for the homeless to serving lunch and cleaning the center, no job was too small and the results were impactful. At the end of the activity, the employees and patrons of the center were happy with the outcome. It was truly a rewarding activity and we could not have done it without Yvonne’s outstanding efforts on selecting, preparing, participating and leading this activity at this very worthwhile non-profit.
