Kim was a proud and successful nurse for 25 years. This spring she was promoted to the role of National Quality Director for Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield. Her goal was to use her nursing knowledge help as many as possible. It was her Dream Job.
Camping, boating, travel and hanging out with friends were Kim's favorite activities. Among her favorite trips was a vacation to Iceland in October 2019. Kim and Barry spent a week on the island in an effort to see the northern lights. The Lady Aurora showed herself on the last 2 nights. When they first appeared and began to dance across the night sky, Kim cried.
Kim naturally sought to help people. She spent many hours as a volunteer over the years. Kim embraced her role as a 4-H Volunteer and 4-H Shooting Sports Instructor.
