Katrina Jenkins named Woman of Influence
The Business Journal of Milwaukee has selected Children’s Primary Care manager Katrina Jenkins as an honoree for its annual Women of Influence award in the “Behind the Scenes” category.
In four short years, Katrina Jenkins has become indispensable in her role as clinic manager for six Children’s Hospital primary care clinics. Originally hired to manage Children’s Hospital’s Downtown Health Center services, she now oversees Next Door Pediatrics, Northside YMCA Primary Care clinic, COA Goldin Center Pediatric, Good Hope Pediatrics and River Glen Pediatrics.
Her work to support the most vulnerable kids in Milwaukee is helping shape a better future for our community. Every time Katrina makes a decision and implements a program, she grounds that work in our value of Purpose – always keeping the kids and families she serves at the center. She has helped implement many programs, including clinical navigators, increased dental services and school nurses.
Katrina’s leadership is grounded in our five values – Purpose, Collaboration, Integrity, Health and Innovation. In addition to her support of the community, she has created a work environment that has earned her high employee engagement scores. She truly epitomizes the Children’s Hospital belief that kids deserve the best.
Beyond her work at Children’s, Katrina supports Milwaukee kids and families through her involvement with the Fatherhood Collaborative, Lindsay Heights Neighborhood Health Alliance, Operation Dream, Black Health Coalition and Bread of Healing free clinic.
Katrina is one of 29 Women of Influence Award winners selected from nearly 180 nominations of influential women from the Milwaukee area. She will be honored at a lunch on June 20 and in a special section in the print edition of the Business Journal the same day. Children’s Hospital CEO Peggy Troy and Dr. Veronica Gunn, vice president of population health management, are past honorees of this prestigious award.
