To Kim, volunteering is about more than giving back. It’s about using her skill set and experience in the medical field to educate the public on critical health and safety issues. She uses her knowledge to provide essential health services—like regularly assisting the Arkansas Department of Health’s North Little Rock office with immunizing students at a back to school clinic. Just last year, she volunteered with a church outreach group to assist the Arkansas Dream Center, with helping Arkansans pick up the pieces after a deadly tornado in April. She packed food, water and supplies and prepared handwritten notes of encouragement to help victims get back on their feet.
