HBA Chicago-Northern Suburbs September 2020 Volunteer of the Month

HBA Chicago-Northern Suburbs is pleased to announce our September 2020 Volunteer of the Month is Catrina Franklin.

When asked to share her experience as an HBA volunteer, Catrina told us: 
To be recognized as Volunteer of the Month from the HBA is a blessing. HBA Chicago-Northern Suburb is a great organization with talented and amazing members. I have been a member of the HBA since 2015, participating in the programming and mentoring committees. The directors and members of each committee are wonderful to work with, they are very encouraging, which makes it easy to stay engaged and to volunteer.

The HBA has allowed me to step out of my comfort zone, increase my confidence in leading events and partner with new members. This has expanded to my everyday work, where I am now seeking other leadership opportunities. I’m also able to share this with my daughter who is very interested in STEM. 

I’m thankful for the HBA’s vision and mission for the advancement of women in the workplace, but I am also thankful for the HBA network. Everyone is truly joined to make an impact in healthcare and the community. Thank you again for this honor.
