Kim joined the Wild Salmon Center in 2011 and oversees its fundraising programs, including the Annual Fund, donor relationships, corporate partnerships, and planned giving. She brings 15 years of experience in nonprofit fundraising, previously with the advocacy arm of the American Cancer Society in Washington, DC. A New England native, Kim’s passion for conservation is rooted in her lifelong love for wildlife and the outdoors, prompting her to relocate to the Pacific Northwest. She holds a BA from Bucknell University and a Master’s in Environmental Law from Lewis & Clark Law School, and currently resides in Bellingham, WA. In her spare time you can find Kim wading through beautiful rivers, hunting for chanterelles, or exploring new trails with her family.

WSC conserves some of the last healthy watersheds for wild salmon, which in turn protects the wildlife, forests, and communities within those ecosystems. The MSL program provided an invaluable understanding of the many policy issues impacting salmon and the Northwest.
