HBA Houston's Honored Volunteer award was presented in February to Kristina Bontrager. Kristina was nominated for her commitment and many contributions as a volunteer for HBA Houston. She demonstrates the positive attitude, initiative and enthusiasm necessary to continue the growth of HBA Houston. Most recently, Kristina was instrumental in the success of our signature Leadership Roundtable event where more than 95 attendees gained valuable insights from their interactions with healthcare and industry leaders. Her coordination and execution of this educational and engaging event brought significant value to our members and guests.
Kristina is currently the director of catering sales for the brand-new Westin Houston Medical Center Hotel. Her passion for serving others through hospitality has made the Medical Center a perfect place for her to dedicate her career and time. With over a decade of experience in the industry, Kristina is looking forward to leading a partnership between Texas Medical Center organizations and the Westin. She is the proud mom to 11-year-old Noah and proud gestational surrogate mother to two miracle babies. She spends her free time with her family in the Kingwood area, enjoying movies, cookouts and DIY renovation projects.
Thank you, Kristina, for your leadership, collaboration, support and dedication to inspire and further the advancement and impact of women in the business of healthcare. HBA Houston would not be possible without the contributions of volunteers like Kristina. She is an extraordinary volunteer that has played a significant role in building the HBA presence in Houston. We are lucky to have Kristina as part of our HBA Houston team.
