Kim has over 20 years of experience in education having worked as a Teacher, Principal, Director of Professional Development, Chief Academic Officer, and Superintendent. She is originally from Iowa and has a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership and Organizations from the University of California, Santa Barbara and a Bachelor of Arts degree with a double major in History and German from Northwestern University.

Kim brings a strong commitment to partnering with youth, families, and communities to identify and engage in new opportunities. She believes collaboration is essential in breaking down the inequities caused by systemic oppression. She is proud to work with a team dedicated to putting youth and families first.
When Kim is not partnering and engaging with the community, she can be found spending time with her husband and two children, practicing yoga, hiking, camping, or getting lost in one of the many books she reads all at the same time.
