December 8, 2015 – Southeast Georgia Health System director of Volunteer
Services, Kristin Doll, CAVS, was presented the prestigious Georgia Director
of Volunteer Services of the Year award at the Council on Auxiliaries/Volunteers
of Georgia Hospital Association (CoA/V) Annual Conference on Oct. 27, 2015.
Nominations submitted by the Health System Auxiliary presidents described
Doll, a certified administrator of volunteer services (CAVS) and member
of the Association for Healthcare Volunteer Resource Professionals, as
being a rare combination of leader, counselor, manager, trainer and friend.
“Kristin approaches every project with her trademark enthusiasm,”
said Mary Lynne Cochran, former Brunswick Campus Auxiliary president.
“Her constant desire is to help volunteers make a valuable contribution
to the hospital while enjoying the benefits of giving back to our community.”
Known for her patience and dedication, Doll commutes between the Health
System’s Brunswick and Camden campuses to successfully direct each
Auxiliary, interview new volunteer applicants, provide training and be
available to all Auxiliary members as needed.
“Her schedule is very busy, but when you call Kristin, she always
makes you feel that she has all the time to talk,” says Kathleen
Worthing, former Camden Campus Auxiliary president. “Whether in
Camden or Brunswick, you can depend on seeing her every week at Board
meetings, fundraisers and social activities – even when they fall
outside of regular work hours.”
Southeast Georgia Health System Marketing vice president, Jackie Weder,
adds, “I’m certain there is no better director of Volunteer
Services in this state. We’re blessed to have Kristin on our team.
Under her direction, the Auxiliary has made significant contributions
to our Health System, most notably, over $600,000 in the last six years.”
