Brief Bio

Faith Hilterbrand began her career in veterinary medicine where she earned her Associate of Applied Science in Veterinary Technology from Columbus State Community College in 2000. Later in 2000, she began working at The Ohio State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital where she taught senior veterinary students in their final year of clinical study. The academic environment encouraged her to continue her studies and earn a Bachelor of Science in Life Science Education from Urbana University in 2006. Faith then spent 9 years honing her skills as an advocate and facilitator for education through teaching life sciences at the Jr high and high school level. Continuously working to improve her skill set led her to Project Dragonfly at Miami University where Faith earned her Master of Arts in Biology in 2015.

Faith’s passion for education and the sciences led her to Lifeline of Ohio in 2016 as a Hospital Development Coordinator working with both transplant centers in the DSA. She continues today as the Manager of Hospital Development where she supports the team responsible for the planning and direction of hospital and community development. These relationships enhance professional collaborations that maximize donation and empower our community to save and heal lives through organ, eye, and tissue donation.

Faith is dedicated to sharing the donation message, but outside of work she enjoys time at the gym, and with family and friends. Faith currently resides in Columbus, Ohio with her two standard poodles, Finley and Phoebe.

What is Resiliency and How Can I Develop It?

Thursday, December 15, 2022, at 2:00pm

After a world-wide pandemic and what has felt like constant upheaval in both our professional and personal lives, how can we navigate the ongoing forces of internal and external stressors? Resiliency is defined as the capacity to prepare for, recover from and adapt in the face of stress, adversity, trauma or challenge (HeartMath definition) and in this course we will discuss what resilience could look like in donation and transplant work, identify the personal and organizational roadblocks to better resilience and explore practices for improved resiliency.
