About the Presentation:

As a sales person, travel was a key requirement of the job.  As a result, Vallie was a passenger on US Airways Flight 1549 that landed in New York’s Hudson River on January 15, 2009.  Vallie will share the details of her experience during the flight and rescue of the event that has become known as the ‘Miracle on the Hudson’.  In addition, she will share key learnings from the experience that will hopefully inspire and motivate all to treasure each and each day because ‘everyday is a lucky day’!

                                             Space is Limited!  We hope to see you there!
