What the HBA means/why volunteering and what the HBA should expect from my contributions:

As soon as I became involved with the HBA as a mentor and a corporate advisory board member, I knew the organization was special. Joining the dedicated volunteers and leaders who are united in an effort to advance gender parity has been both energizing and empowering. I have valued the network and friendships as well as the meaningful work. HBA Seattle has accomplished amazing things, with many thanks to Erin Lavelle and Jennifer Griffith for their leadership over the past two years. It is truly an honor to follow in their footsteps with Nadia Dac, continuing the tremendous progress and growth from member and corporate partner engagement to mentorship. I look forward to working with the team to foster the innovative and supportive spirit of HBA Seattle to make the HBA’s vision a reality. And, to have fun along the way.

“I am grateful to the HBA Seattle volunteers for their energy and enthusiasm. Working together, they have been the foundation for the success of the chapter and our members. We look forward to the next phase of growth for the chapter under the leadership of Nancy and Nadia.” –Erin Lavelle
