Michelle Morse joined the HBA in February 2021. She supports the HBA’s regional and chapter leaders in the development and implementation of the HBA’s volunteer-led events, including event programming and educational seminars. She prides herself in keeping programs on schedule and within scope and budget, while working toward high efficiencies and flawless execution. The part of her job that she enjoys most is relationship building with volunteer member leaders, partners and other key stakeholders. Michelle also manages other member value offerings such as the HBA mentorship program and affinity groups. This is a passion project for her, as she credits much of her own career growth and professional accomplishments to the guidance she has received from her many mentors and communities. She is excited to join the HBA’s member experience team and to have a positive impact on HBA’s mission of achieving gender parity within the field of healthcare (and ideally one day in all aspects of society). As the daughter of an immigrant, she also has a strong interest in diversifying voices in leadership roles to include individuals from various distinct and unique backgrounds.
Michelle holds a Project Management Professional (PMP) certification from the Project Management Institute and a BA from American University with a focus in psychology and literature. She has over ten years’ experience working in association management first with a military nonprofit organization and, most recently, with a medical association dedicated to improving women’s health. In her free time, Michelle volunteers with her local animal rescue, curls up with a good book and travels with friends and family.
