Hi All! I'm Kimberly and I have been with OLC since January 2019. I am active with tutoring, fund raising and as a board advisory.

I am currently pursing my Masters in Social Work. My undergrad is in Sociology. In short, I am a people person! I hope to help our organization out by analyzing our interactions with one another and with our students to help build strong bonds. When I am not working, tutoring or at school, I enjoy spending time with my family. I also like to play sports, play video games and work out.

My role as Tutor Coordinator is to ensure our voices as tutors are heard. This includes support during tutoring, questions or concerns or general feedback. I will reach out to all of our tutors at the end of the month to do a monthly check in. Also, I can help connect you with any of our board members and the committees they lead. My goal is to become unified as tutors and become like a family!

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have and questions or concerns. If you email me, I encourage following up with a text message.
