Welcome Eva Hawkins!
It is with warm excitement that I get to introduce LVIM’s new Volunteer Manager to you!
Meet Eva Hawkins!
Eva comes to LVIM with an array of experience and a passion for LVIM’s mission.
For the last four years, she has been the Watson Clinic Foundation’s Arts in Medicine Coordinator where she worked with volunteers to bring the healing power of art to individuals undergoing cancer treatment. In this role, she worked closely with the medical community and managed the day-to-day operations of the program, including volunteer recruitment and management.
Prior to her role with the Arts in Medicine Program, Eva was the Program Director for Project Think Pink Program at WeCare of Polk County, one of LVIM’s closest collaborative partners. While there, she oversaw both the day-to-day operation of a grant-funded free mammogram program and the fundraising initiatives that made it possible.
Her background is comprised of a wealth of experience in human resources, non-profits, and organizational development. Fun fact: Eva is also a twice published author and an avid quilter. Many of her quilts are on display at the Watson Clinic Cancer Center as part of the programs rotating art collection.
We are excited to welcome Eva’s creativity, warm spirit, and extensive knowledge and experience to LVIM. Eva officially began her new role as LVIM’s Volunteer Manager on November 9th.
Welcome to the LVIM Family Eva!
