Karyn Davis – 2021 Volunteer of the Year

Karyn Davis

Many readers will recognize the name Karyn Davis, and for good reason. Not only was Karyn the Manager of Operations for Hemophilia of North Carolina (HNC) from 2015-2020, but she has remained an integral part of the organization’s operations even after leaving her position. You can find Karyn (and her family) at every Family Festival & Walk, smiling and coordinating all of the 60+ volunteers that show up. Behind the scenes, she works to post the volunteer needs, communicate with interested volunteers, and develop clear instructions to make sure that the event goes as smoothly as possible. This is one of the many reasons that Karyn was the obvious choice for the 2021 HNC Volunteer of the Year award!

Karyn joined the organization without any family connection to the bleeding disorders community, although she did know two neighbors with hemophilia growing up. However, Karyn fell in love with this community, going above and beyond her job duties. When Karyn left her position in 2020 for personal reasons, she made it clear that she wanted to remain involved. While many people say this, it is unusual for someone to stay as involved as she has. Karyn’s deep knowledge of this community and the operations of HNC have allowed her to transition into a volunteer role without any training.

Some of Karyn’s many volunteer commitments include: sitting on multiple committees, coordinating volunteers, assisting with the transition of our donor and member database, preparing mailings, attending events where volunteer coordination is needed (most noteworthy are the two Festival & Walks), and being one of the most dedicated advocates on behalf of the bleeding disorders community.

One joke that people make is that once someone is involved in this community for a while, they’re part of the family. It’s hard not to fall in love with the bleeding disorders community. Karyn is proof of this. Her passion for people with bleeding disorders is evident by her commitment over this last year. For all of these reasons and more, we are so grateful for Karyn and proud to call her the 2021 Volunteer of the Year!
