2017 Recipient: Katherine Chubbs, CHE 

Katherine’s work as a nurse, front line manager, and senior executive has inspired hundreds of emerging health leaders in her last organization (Eastern Health) and across Canada.

Mentorship comes naturally to Katherine, and her goal for mentoring is twofold – she mentors to develop leaders, but most importantly, to positively affect healthcare for clients, patients, and residents. Katherine holds a fast pace executive position but always finds time to meet with mentees and provide guidance and feedback that is useful. She has also created a community of her mentees who often share learnings with each other.
