Ashley Evering lives with the mantra of “leaving others better than you met them.” This led her to choosing a major of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Florida, from which she graduated in 2022. Using her mantra to guide her after graduating, she decided to join a company whose main purpose is bettering quality of life and putting patients first—Edwards Lifesciences. At Edwards, Ashley is a part of the Technical Development Program. The 18-month program allows participants to cycle through different business functions and units to become a well-rounded engineer. Outside of work, she enjoys exploring her new Californian surroundings, rollerskating and puzzles. She is looking forward to the opportunities of integrating herself in her new state and becoming an active participant in her community.
