Heidy Valdes - Chief Experience Officer

Heidy Valdes is passionate about the software experience.

She was born in Havana Cuba. At the age of 11, she moved to Canada with her father. She didn’t speak the language, but quickly found ways to communicate with friends and teachers. As for the cold weather:  she never learned to love it, but did manage to survive it for 19 years, and even enjoyed it at times.  Three years ago, Heidy moved to Miami – closer to the culture and climate than Canada! – and enjoying getting back to her roots.

Heidy loves all animals. Her biggest joy is her dog Soda, adopted from an Animal Rescue Organization in Canada.  She contributes to helping animals by volunteering at a local animal shelter, and by helping raise money for organizations helping animals in need. She took a personal pledge to not visit zoos, aquariums or circus that keep animals for profit.
