Independent Alum of the Day

Lois Hartman didn't follow the traditional route when it came to education. Career came first, followed by family. It was only when Lois realized that she was being passed over for opportunities due to her lack of post-secondary education that she decided to pursue her bachelor's degree at Madonna University. Upon completion, many new doors opened for her in her career.

Lois has been in the health care industry for the last sixteen years. Since 2005, she has held multiple roles at Trinity Health, one of the largest multi-institutional Catholic health care delivery systems in the nation. Lois  earned her Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies with a concentration in organizational communications from Madonna University in 2014.  She recently transitioned to an IT project management role within Trinity Information Systems.  Her project management and facilitation experience led to an opportunity within her organization to assist in Trinity Health's Core Values implementation to system office colleagues.  

Outside of work, Lois devotes her time to her family: her husband, Jeremy, and 11-year-old son, Logan. She is actively involved in club soccer in many capacities. She also is a member of Wicked Jeeps Southeast Michigan, a club for Jeep enthusiasts that works with numerous charities and organizations in southeast Michigan.  In her spare time, Lois is an avid reader, film buff and dog lover.

My motivation

My motivation is making a difference, which leads me to seek out opportunities to give back to my local community. I love that I also work for an organization that allows me to do that on a national level.

My latest accomplishments

My latest accomplishment is completing facilitator training for my organization's "Core Value" initiative. I will be assisting with the implementation of this initiative to thousands of our employees at Trinity Health.

Next big goal

I would like to help job seekers with improving their resumes, highlighting their strengths to potential employers.  I have previously assisted many colleagues and friends with this task and would like to continue to do this work on a regular basis.

Why is choosing your own path important?

As previously mentioned, my life path was not traditional, but my experience prior to college made my educational experience more meaningful. It's more important to set goals and see them through to fruition.
