Kim’s career has led her to collaborate with brilliant educators and non-profit leaders working in urban districts across the United States. It began when she worked in a large New York City public high school running an after-school program in 2003 and led most recently to coaching and training leaders at a national non-profit focused on social and emotional learning through play and serving for several years as a blended learning high school leader in San Francisco. Today, Kim is a seasoned leader, coach, and facilitator in the non-profit and education sectors, with special interests in learning and learning systems, culture, and leadership development. A theme running through all of this work has been a passion for seeking social justice in our education system.
Kim holds a B.A. in anthropology from Cornell University, a certificate from Boston University’s Institute for Nonprofit Management and Leadership, and a master’s in education in school leadership from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Her experience in the school leadership program was transformational in her journey as a leader for equity, deepening her commitment to fighting for change in big and small ways every day.
When Kim is not at work, you can find her riding her bike, hiking in the Sierras with her dogs, baking delicious treats, or swimming in a local lake.
