Spotlight: catrina johnson, volunteer manager

Location: 650 Offices, Schaumburg

“When I come to work at Little City, what I enjoy most is interacting with our participants and volunteers. When a community member comes to Little City and interacts with some of our amazing participants for the first time, they leave with a new outlook on life. Their experience has given them a new perspective how everyone should interact with individuals with disabilities. Not to see the disability but to see the person. That every person has likes, dislikes and skills to share.”

Originally hired into the LifePath Adults residential program in 2010, in 2012 Catrina Johnson became the Volunteer Manager in the Marketing and Communications Department.

“Every day I have the privilege to say I am making a difference in someone’s life. This is the most rewarding role – to be able to change lives within Little City and our community.”

Catrina enjoys traveling with her family and spending time with her children. As a family, they volunteer to support local organizations within the northern suburbs where they live. Catrina’s all-time favorite movies are “Fried Green Tomatoes,” “Warriors” and “Hairspray.” She adores Mexican food, and her favorite band is Sade.
