That’s what drives her, what keeps her coming to work every day.
She’s there to help that child begin to heal.
She can see, even in her interview with a child, the weight of what has happened slowly lift.
“They’re never going to forget that trauma,” Kim says, “but it doesn’t have to define who they are.”
She loves getting to know the kids, finding out what makes them tick. As the interview goes on, their personality starts to shine through: goofy, shy, funny.
“They’re all more than what happened to them,” she says.
Helping those kids — that’s why she comes in every morning.
It’s why she runs each night, shedding the stress with each stride, making sure she’s ready to be her best the next day.
Those children need her at her best.
