Kim O’Brien, Executive Director

Kim joined the Nonprofit Leadership initiative in late 2015 as a project-leader for this community collaboration. A year into the project the original collaborators created an Executive Director role and Kim was hired in that position. Prior to joining the Initiative, Kim worked for LEAVEN as a Development and Marketing Coordinator. Before this career change kim worked in Human Resources for many years in varying capacities, yet always the nonprofit world. Along with these career paths, Kim was involved on many local nonprofit boards and committees working on fundraising campaigns, human resources projects and technology improvements.
