A Bit About Kim

While her favorite movie (Forrest Gump) may be set in the lowcountry of South Carolina and was the backdrop of her wedding, Kim has called the Upstate home for most of her life and loves it here -- which is reflected in her community service on the Upstate Mediation Center board of directors,  as an Anderson County Guardian ad Litem, and community zoning advocate. She completed her MSW at the University of South Carolina, and has since obtained the highest level of licensure in the state of South Carolina (LISW-CP), which allows her to provide clinical supervision to our own budding social workers at Pendleton Place. Kim is passionate about supporting families of all kinds, and has a special interest in elevating and celebrating kinship care. As we launch our new Family Resource Center, Kim will incorporate her professional experience  a domestic violence counselor, therapist, and assessment director in psychiatric facilities. In addition to her passion for assisting families find their inherent strengths and success, Kim is also all-in for snuggling her  grandbabies - and eating tacos!
