Kim has been a friend to Grades of Green for many years helping out with Verte and other Grades of Green projects. Her background is in fine arts, marketing, and logistics where she is known as a “go-to” person when you want to get things done. Kim began her career in advertising working for N.W. Ayer & Son, Chiat Day, and the Los Angeles Times. She was recruited to DirecTV where she worked for ten years in the creative services department, rising to the level of Senior Manager. She loves the creative process – everything from brainstorming, to coming up with new procedures – even building a life-size cake for Verte’s 10 year celebration. Kim also has spent her time volunteering for a variety of organizations including serving as the Booster Club President for Mira Costa Boys Volleyball program. Kim is looking forward to turning her energies and commitment towards the continued success and further expansion of Grades of Green as the organization matures into its next phase of accomplishments. Fun fact: Kim’s younger son was the Grandview Gator mascot at the first Grades of Green Earth Day celebration.
