Valerie Prescott Paves the Way for Women in Industrial Cleaning
We are excited to announce Valerie Prescott’s recent promotion to Evergreen Canton Account Manager! She is the first female to take this career path with EnviroVac and we couldn’t be more proud of her!
Valerie has been with the company for 5 years. She began her career in industrial cleaning as a plant Admin Assistant. A year later, she entered the field as a Tech 1. As her skills and responsibility increased, she was promoted to Crew Leader and then a Supervisor, branched out of the Savannah office.
When asked why she chose an industrial cleaning career at EnviroVac, Valerie replied, “I can’t give a reason, except I finally found something that I truly enjoy doing!” She also enjoys “working with everyone at EnviroVac.” She loves learning something new every day that she goes to work, and loves to hydroblast.
Valerie also stated that she prides herself on “a safety mindset, keeping her crew safe, leading by example, working hard, and being hands on.” Her focus on safety was recently acknowledged by Jimmy Jackson, EnviroVac Vice President of NC/SC/UHV, “Valerie has extremely impressed me every time I’ve worked around her on outages. As she mentions, she leads with a safety first mindset. One of my most appreciated attributes in any leader is leading by example and not asking your crew to do anything you wouldn’t do. That is how she leads.”
Kevin Jackson, EnviroVac CEO, echoes these same accolades, “Valerie is extremely safety conscious and is a phenomenal leader.” He states that it has been very rewarding watching Valerie build her career and climb the ranks within the company. At EnviroVac, we provide many opportunities for professional growth and development within the company, and we are always excited to promote and hire within.
When she’s not working, Valerie loves spending time with her family. Family is the most important thing to her.
Congratulations to Valerie! We are grateful to have her as a valued member of our EnviroVac family!
