Young professionals focus on leadership and the year ahead

It was fitting for the recent Young Professionals Connection luncheon and town hall to be at Missouri Baptist Medical Center’s Clinical Learning Institute. Orvin Kimbrough, president and CEO of the United Way of Greater St. Louis, coached attendees on how to advance their careers and even shared his personal cell phone number to stay connected. The event reflected the Connection program’s commitment to professional development.

Katelyn Marzette, St. Louis Children’s Hospital HR business partner and Young Professionals Connection committee member, moderated the town hall and asked Kimbrough questions from group members. Kimbrough also answered audience questions.

Discussion themes included:

  • having mentors and sponsors, and knowing the difference
  • the power of other perspectives, including those from other generations
  • not thinking about working, but thinking about the work you do

The group celebrated the support of the Young Professionals Connection executive sponsor, BJC group president Lee Fetter, who will retire at the end of the year. A new executive sponsor, BJC Home Care and Community Services president Dan Rothery, was then announced. The group also introduced new co-leads for the 2019-2021 term: Jessica Campbell, BJC supply chain data analyst, and Michael Berg, Barnes-Jewish Hospital project coordinator. Their first undertaking was leading event guests in planning for 2019.

Connections to community outreach

During the luncheon and town hall, the BJC Young Professionals Connection group supported Marygrove, a United Way agency that supports youth living in communities BJC serves. Marygrove is a therapeutic residential program that provides quality mental health services to children who have endured trauma, young adults and their families who are economically disadvantaged. Event guests welcomed representatives from Marygrove and donated items like blankets and games for children in need.

Community outreach is one of the BJC Connections program focus areas. To learn more about BJC Connections Groups and how to get involved, visit
