Director of Assistance Dogs
After graduating from Eastern Michigan University in 1996, Kim began her career as an Activities Director in a nursing home and, later, in a community setting for people living with Alzheimer’s. During her first four years of work experience she learned one thing: a nursing home is not, and never will be, a place to call home!
In January of 2001, she began her journey at The Ability Center as the Youth Services Coordinator. From day one, Kim experienced the “AH-HA!” feeling we all search for in our careers, and she knew this is where she belonged. Over the years she has worn many hats, dabbling in a little bit of everything the center has to offer. In 2005, she settled into her current position of Director of Community Services.
Kim’s current role at ACT includes being the sounding board for all programs. She provides support to both ACT staff and the consumers we serve to ensure that things run smoothly and that our mission is on track.
