Kim recently retired after a 35 year career with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. The majority of years were in Bay County, serving the past 10 years as Director for Bay and Arenac DHHS offices. She holds a Bachelors degree in Social Work, and Masters in Organizational Leadership and Administration.
Serving our most vulnerable citizens has been her passion, as she held a variety of positions in multiple counties. Her career began as a children’s services worker, and developed into opportunities working with vulnerable adults, overseeing assistance programs, and ultimately taking on more leadership roles within state government and the Bay County community.
Kim served, and held leadership roles, in many organizations throughout her career, including the Bay Human Services Collaborative Council, and Arenac Multi Purpose Collaborative Body. She served on the boards for Northeast Michigan 211, Bay Health Plan, and the Pardee Cancer Treatment Fund. She also served on many statewide committees including the County Director’s Advisory Council, Quality Improvement Council for child welfare, and several initiatives to enhance hiring, recruitment, and retention of staff. Kim is also a 2010 graduate of MDHHS Leadership Academy. She continues as a member of Bay City Morning Rotary.
Kim looks forward to the opportunity to continue to serve the community as a member of the Bay County Medical Care Facility/MDHHS Board.
