Alumnae Spotlight

December 2019 - Patricia "Trish" Springer '00

_DSC0071 copy (1).jpg
This month's Alumna Spotlight shines on Patricia "Trish" Springer of the class of 2000. Ms. Springer was recognized at our Alumnae Awards Ceremony on Friday, October 4 as a recipient of the Mother Generosa McCafferty Distinguished Alumna Award. She was nominated for this award because she is a talented human resources professional that balances a career as an Employee Benefits Specialist in the Johns Hopkins Health System with volunteer work at her church.

After Catholic High, she graduated from Towson University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Healthcare Management and she recently completed her Master’s in Business Administration at University of Maryland University College. Ms. Springer’s 20 year career in human resources includes experience at Johns Hopkins Health System, the Maryland Transit Administration, and the Baltimore County Government. She is a former Notary Public, a member of the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans, and in 2015 was recognized as a top State of Maryland Retirement Coordinator. Ms. Springer has 18 years of experience in youth ministry and mentors a group of high school aged girls at the Church of the Nativity. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her 10 nieces and nephews for whom she tries to be a good example and aims to take herself on one vacation alone every year to focus on herself. She gives back to Catholic High by serving as the co-chair of the Alumnae Association, where she is responsible for planning Alumnae Socials twice a year, in addition to volunteering at many of the alumnae events, such as Career Day and Homecoming, and inducts our graduating seniors into the alumnae association at the end of the school year.
