In an effort to share the faces behind our organization before we open this August with our community, we're shining a spotlight on our Planning Team, Volunteers, and Board Members who have worked tirelessly to get Trinity Health Center open to provide health and healing to the working uninsured and underinsured neighbors in DeSoto County.
This week, we're spotlighting Trinity Health Center Volunteer Coordinator, Katrina McKinney-Kimble. A member of Brown Missionary Baptist Church, Katrina was first on the planning team back in 2017 to discuss the need for a DeSoto County charitable health clinic.
Why did you become involved with Trinity Health Center?
Back in 2017 during a meeting at Brown M. B. Church, Pastor Orr asked members to serve on the planning committee for a new clinic. I grew up in Sardis, MS, which is a small rural town and understood the needs of the underserved population. This was an opportunity for me to put faith in action by serving our community.
What excites you most about Trinity Health Center's mission and purpose?
Wow, I am so excited about everything. Trinity Health Center will meet the needs of families through the services and programs provided, improve the quality for community, and be a resource of healing for generations.
What are some of your favorite places in our County to enjoy a healthy lifestyle?
I like the fresh salads at Newk's , Pyro's or Jason's Deli. I like to walk on the trails at my church, Jim Saucier Park or Greenbrook Lake Park. I love being near water.
What is your favorite quote or bible verse?
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
- Philippians 4:6
We are so thankful for Katrina's dedication to volunteer recruitment and retention for Trinity Health Center.
