Kimberly graduated from IUPUI with her Master of Social Work degree in 2012. Kimberly has worked in the helping profession for over ten years either as an intern, volunteer or as paid staff. Upon graduating with her MSW, she accepted a position at Adult and Child Mental Health as a school-based therapist. Loving her job, but wanting to work more with families versus just students, she accepted her current position as Community Outreach Coordinator and McKinney-Vento Liaison with Franklin Community School Corporation. During her time with Franklin Schools, Kimberly has assisted many individuals become gainfully employed and move from homelessness to permanently housed. She has assisted at risk and students identified as homeless receive the same education and resources as housed students by providing resources, school supplies, hygiene supplies, clothing and other basic essentials.
