She was promoted to Senior Human Resource Business Partner, then spent some time as Strategic HR Partner, and currently serves in a Director of HR Services role. She has more than 24 years of client relationship management experience which includes providing 17 years of Human Resources Consulting to business owners.

In her current role as a Director of Human Resource Services, Kim leads a team of HR Business Partners. She has worked with clients in a variety of industries, ranging from heavy manufacturing to professional service firms, retail, and non-profit organizations. Kim prides herself on her ability to connect with people at all levels of an organization, building trust and long-lasting relationships. She works hard to find the appropriate balance between the needs of the organization and the needs of her clients’ employees. Kim also chairs the Wellness Program for the Stoller Group of Companies, encouraging employees to engage in educational activities and challenges with the goal of developing good habits for holistic healthy living.

Kim enjoys working with her client contacts and supporting her team to identify and implement strategic initiatives that range from big picture (supervisor development, process improvement, compliance, training, change management and rebuilding organizational culture) to the equally important smaller building blocks of organization growth (employee relations management, policy development and communication, risk management, and evaluating and building employee retention strategies).

Kim is active with the local Human Resources professional association PHRMA (Portland Human Resource Management Association) and is a member of the national organization Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). She has served as President of Portlandia, a non-profit organization of professional women, which gives back to the community by mentoring women who are trying to break out of the cycle of poverty on their path to self-sufficiency. In addition to her leadership role, she also served as a mentor in Portlandia’s mentorship program. She has also contributed as Chairwoman for Children’s Hour Academy Foundation and Westside Young Professionals Group, a program of the Beaverton Chamber of Commerce.

Kim’s interests outside of work include spending time with her family, golfing, wine tasting and enjoying the wide variety of great eats and activities that Portland has to offer. She also enjoys being a Big as part of the mentorship program of Big Brothers Big Sisters Columbia NW.
