Who, Me? Busy?

These women squeeze every moment out of their days, making philanthropy a priority

Heather Redrick

Heather Redrick, Chief Nursing Officer at Emory Johns Creek, believes that it takes a village to get everybody where they need to be when you have a very active family. Between her and her husband of twelve years, a detective with the Dekalb County Police Department, they have a total of four kids, one granddaughter, and a four-year-old golden retriever named Lexi. A football-loving sports family, they are pretty outdoorsy, but they also all enjoy settling in for a family games night. Heather's work at Emory Johns Creek supports several schools and organizations in the community. In her volunteer life, Heather has served as president of Leadership John’s Creek for the last two years and can also be found in the nursery at her church on Sundays.

Pamela Hawkins

Pamela Hawkins, a resident of Johns Creek, works for Bank of America and is the chair of the Black Professional Group, Atlanta Chapter (BPG). Seeing the continuous killings of so many within the Black community, she knew that she had to find a way to be a vehicle for change. Seven events and 3,600 people later, Pamela is still actively working on a greater understanding of issues facing the Black Community. Starting off each day working out and spending time with God not only relieves stress, it also allows her to be positive. From volunteering at work to her countless other civic, faith-based, or secular activities, it is easy to see why she received a Good Citizen Award from Representative Billy Mitchell. Pamela is the embodiment of service. She is happily married, has five children, a new granddaughter and a nine-week-old Cavapoo puppy.

Hannah Whitney

Hannah Whitney is the event director for Cherry Street Brewing Company. She is a happily married mother of two amazing children: Gavin, a ten-year-old who loves ice hockey, and five-month-old Beckett. Whether it is going on a hike, watching a movie, or having a family dinner, Hannah loves family time with her husband and kids. Since developing the event program for Cherry Street, Hannah has had the pleasure of planning and executing events for numerous charities and missions. In a happy combination of her home life and Cherry Street’s community efforts, the Vickery location has just launched a new “Moms and Mental Health” event that will discuss parenting, provide resources, and build a community of incredible moms doing their best to juggle it all.

Chelsea Miller

Chelsea Miller is the beverage director for Cherry Street Brewing Company, a women-owned and operated small business. She credits the company with helping her achieve her work-life balance, as Cherry Street prioritizes its employees as family, giving Chelsea the ability to thrive in her role and focus on her family life as well.  Whether it’s a school function, or just a night in with the kids, Chelsea’s flexible schedule at Cherry Street allows for time with her eight-year-old daughter Charlie and two-year-old son William, all of whom love the outdoors. Through work, Chelsea is actively involved with many civic and secular organizations and partners with other women in the liquor industry to grow their networks.
