Learning & Development Specialist
“Do the best you can until you know better Then when you know better, do better.” Maya Angelou
Kim (Hilderbrand) DuBois, MSW joined the Learning and Development Team in February of 2019.
Kim received her BA from University of Illinois-Chicago and her Master’s Degree in Social work from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan (35 years ago!).
Over the past several years, Kim has had the benefit of working for and with amazing professional mentors who have influenced her work however, her best teachers/mentors have been those who are recipients of support and services (who shared what worked and didn’t work) and their individual and collective stories of resilience. Those stories have been most inspirational and impactful to drive better approaches, services and outcomes in all of the work especially, in the field of Child Welfare.
Prior to joining the L&D Team, lived on the Western Slope for over 21 years and during that time, managed County Child Welfare and Adult Protection Services; was a Coordinator/Liaison for five-county regional Early Childhood Program; and Manager for Recovery Center (Halfway House and Detox).
Kim enjoys spending time with her family and friends and enjoys the outdoors, reading and watching sports events.
