Illinois Chapter Board Members
Martha Hauber – President
Martha holds a Bachelors of Science in Accountancy and is certified in public accounting. She spent her early career at U.S. Robotics and Grant Thornton. More recently, she has served as Vice President, Finance at the education/consulting firm, 95 Percent Group. She has also served as the Treasurer of the Children’s Heart Foundation’s national board. Her involvement with the Children’s Heart Foundation began after the birth of her fourth child. Drew was born with a severe congenital heart defect, Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. Through this experience, and the death of her infant sister from a congenital heart defect (CHD), she became aware of the prevalence of CHDs and the challenges associated with treatment. She also recognized the considerable gap that exists between the occurrence of the condition and the financial support dedicated towards research of CHDs. Therefore several years ago, she became passionate about the Children’s Heart Foundation and supporting its mission to fund CHD research.
