People who know Gene Huber will tell you that she is best known for her incredible work ethic.
They’ll point out that she has achieved success at different jobs over the years and even earned two master’s degrees while working full time. But, it’s the fact that she retired from being the Administrator of the Peoria City and County Health Department only to step into the role as Chief Financial Officer of the Neighborhood House is what brings her here today.
You see, Gene was told that they needed a strong CFO, so she rose to the occasion.
Gene is a leader who inspires, creates a fun working environment and steps in when needed. Gene has even helped cook for the 1,000 people the Neighborhood House feeds a day.
Gene leads by example and shows others what a true leader should be and for this we welcome her to the 25 Women in Leadership.
