Greening Preschools Coordinator
Alameda County General Services Agency
Kim graduated from UC Berkeley with a B.S. in Society and Environment and a City and Regional Planning minor.
Kim is working for Alameda County’s Early Care and Education Planning Council as the Greening Preschools Coordinator. "I promote waste reduction and recycling in preschools and child care centers throughout the County. So far, I've trained over 300 preschoolers how to do the 4Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rot) and I'm looking forward to several more recycling program roll-outs," says Kim.
Kim is currently developing strategies for parent engagement to build a bridge between waste reduction at home and at preschool. She is also excited to begin creating a green purchasing guide for early care and education settings to help providers make healthier, safer and more sustainable product choices.
After the program year, Kim looks forward to using her experiences with engaging the child care community to promote environmentally just and sustainable urban communities.
