Born and bred in Gwinnett, this Central Gwinnett High School graduate has served Gwinnett County Government since 2010 and Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful since 2017. Prior to that, she served in education for 10 years and as a stay-at-home mom to three wonderful girls for nine years. The fact that she is a cradle Gwinnettian and raised her three girls in the county fuels her passion for the protection of her community and local environment. She believes environmental education and community action make huge impacts, and she feels fortunate to have the opportunity to contribute to the enlightenment and engagement of a variety of government, nonprofit, school and community groups. She finds the variety of events that GC&B offers to be most impactful, particularly recycling events like America Recycles Day, Earth Day and Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day. Recycling reduces toxic waste and environmental pollution, which provides immediate benefits to human health. By recycling, it conserves natural resources and protects natural ecosystems, all of which enhance the long run sustainability in the biosphere. Recycling also means less waste, which cuts down on the need for landfills and incinerators.
When not hard at work at GC&B or appearing at a variety of events, Kim can be found spending time with her girls, her friends and her Great Dane in the Great Outdoors. She loves hiking, camping, horseback riding, interior design and attending services at 12Stone Church.
