Volunteer of the Year

2020 Volunteer of the year


Kristi Whitman fell in love with several individuals with Down syndrome while working at the Vanderbilt Down Syndrome Clinic. Although she is no longer in the DS Clinic and is now in Pediatric Critical Care, she continues to give her time and love to individuals with Down syndrome. If Kristi is not volunteering with Habitat for Humanity as a Supervisor on Site, you will find her at DSAMT's many events. The last four years, Kristi has been instrumental in coordinating volunteers for the Nashville Buddy Walk® both with scheduling prior to the walk and supervision of those volunteers the day of the walk. Kristi has helped with just about every Baby Shower DSAMT has held at Vanderbilt. Recently, she has started assisting as a fill-in for Book Club on Tuesday evenings. Kristi has been known to drop everything and come to events at the last moment when people have backed out and has recruited additional help to come to several events.  Please help me thank our very deserving volunteer of the year – Ms. Kristi Whitman
