“Empowering people with knowledge, resources and access can be monumental in their road to achieving their goals.”
Kim believes that one of the most important ways to work successfully in helping people through difficult times involves building community and accessing resources. With over 30 years of experience in the field of social work, she has found this to be true with young people as well as adults dealing with major life changes.
Previous to working at Evo, Kim held clinical and administrative positions within the Department of Adolescent Medicine at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and at the Los Angeles Free Clinic. She has had extensive experience with high-risk young people, including those dealing with pregnancy, parenting, HIV, gang affiliation, and substance use.
At Evo, Kim supports clients in the “Engagement” track of the program to make concrete changes toward stability and identifying purpose in their lives. Her aim is to empower people with knowledge, resources and access on their road to achieving their goals.
She holds a Master of Social Work from Boston University.
