Who's Who 2011: Trinka Hileman
Monday, March 21, 2011
Hileman is the director of Womancare at Saint Francis Medical Center, where she's worked since 1987. She is involved with the booster club at Notre Dame Regional High School, the American Cancer Society Breast Cancer Awareness luncheon, Reach to Recovery and Look Good...Feel Better, RESTORE Breast Cancer Support Group, Dig For Life and the United Way of Southeast Missouri. She is a member of the Southeast Missouri Cancer Control Coalition and the Friends of Saint Francis board of directors.
If she had 10 more hours a week to volunteer, says Hileman, she would spend it at a shelter for women and children, helping the homeless with supportive services.
"For many children, growing up in a violent home is a terrifying and traumatic experience that can affect every aspect of their life, growth and development. Many mothers often go to great and courageous lengths to protect their children from abusive partners. I want to make a positive and godly impact on women and children that will last for their entire lives by encouraging them to make God-honoring choices."
