Valens helps employers do better.
As part of that mission, we identify Issues, recommend Solutions, and Educate your entire team.
Welcome to Valens
HR is not just about hiring and firing…it’s about people and resources. And getting it right translates to higher employee engagement and productivity, increased profitability, and reduced legal risk. Similarly, Union-Avoidance is not just about winning a union election…it’s about identifying the issues that your people believe a union can solve. Valens provides the guidance, tools, technology, and expertise necessary to help position your business for sustainable long-term growth. Here’s how we do it:
Meet Tracy, Founder and CEO
Tracy is an Employment and Labor Law attorney and HR Practitioner with over 35 years of hands-on experience. A consummate professional with a workforce-centric perspective, Tracy held leadership roles within the HR, Legal, and Labor Relations’ Departments of public and private employers in the banking, retail, distribution, transportation, logistics, higher education, real estate, emergency/governmental services, and healthcare industries.
She launched Valens to provide small and growing businesses with the resources needed to confidently navigate through the complex maze of HR and union-avoidance or CBA cost-containment.
Tracy has serviced some of the world’s most respected companies including Walt Disney World Resorts, Rite Aid Corporation, EXL Technology Solutions, Penske Truck Leasing, and Penske Logistics.
She grew up in rural central Pennsylvania working on her family’s chicken farm while also attending middle/high school and working part-time positions at a local bank and several restaurants. She went on to complete her B.A. Degree in English/Professional Writing and secure a J.D. Degree from Widener University; ultimately becoming licensed to practice law, all while holding down a full-time career and raising her 3 children, Kylie, Tyler and Remy.
Tracy is passionate about all things related to the conservation of water and wildlife, as well as helping women break free and heal from the trauma of domestic violence and abuse. When she is not working, you’ll find her traveling solo cross-country in a ’73 Nomad travel trailer that she renovated herself, volunteering with West Orange Habitat for Humanity or the Horizon Scholars Program, listening to live music, or enjoying a nice ocean breeze.
