Deborah Vezan is recognized as an NAPW VIP Woman of the Year for her outstanding leadership and commitment within her profession

NAPW honors Deborah Vezan, Owner of Limbkeepers®, as a 2015 Professional Woman of the Year. Ms. Vezan is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in Healthcare Apparel. As the largest, most-recognized networking organization of professional women in the country, spanning virtually every industry and profession, the National Association of Professional Women is a powerfully vibrant networking community with over 600,000 members and over 200 Local Chapters.

Deborah Vezan never thought a 35-year career as a sports apparel executive would help pave the way to a rewarding second career. But after nine years of balancing a full-time job and managing the care of her elderly parents, she became inpsired by the many needs and demands of a rapidly expanding and aging population.

In 2010, Ms. Vezan left the garment industry for good. After realizing how the skin of the elderly is very fragile and susceptible to tears, she was determined to find a way to make a difference. She began using her industry knowledge and many years of experience to help design protective clothing for her elderly mother. After months of hard work and determination, Ms. Vezan succeeded in creating a line of non-compression products for skin protection: Limbkeepers® was born.

Today, Limbkeepers® offers an exceptional line of solution products, including arm sleeves, leg sleeves, forearm sleeves and fingerless gloves. All products are made of polypropylene and CoolMax® polyester yarns, which have inherent moisture wicking features for quick dry. The rebound stretch keeps sleeves from sliding down and helps retain their shape. The blend of these high-performance yarns with Lycra® spandex, nylon and elastic make a cushioned form-fitting sleeve without compression. Limbkeepers® is to be featured on an upcoming episode of Innovations with Ed Begley, Jr.

NAPW's mission is to provide an exclusive, highly advanced networking forum to successful women executives, professionals and entrepreneurs where they can aspire, connect and achieve. Through innovative resources, unique tools and progressive benefits, professional women interact, exchange ideas, advance their knowledge and empower each other.
