About Kim

As the Director, Indigenous Innovation Institute, Kim and her team uphold the Technology Council's commitment to Indigenous-designed and tech and career-ready skills training programs. Kim is deeply passionate about the work the Technology Council is doing to create meaningful opportunities for Indigenous learners across BC.

Kim has more than 10 years of experience in her field. In her previous role at the Technology Council, Kim was the Director, Impact and Community Partnerships where she was responsible for building relationships and storytelling to report on the impactful work of the organization. Prior to the Technology Council, Kim worked with the Government of the Northwest Territories on various capital projects dealing largely with health information systems, deploying technology to the Territory's five regions. Through this work she found a passion in connecting remote communities to tech, and was inspired by how technology can influence the well-being of ourselves and others.

Kim is an Inuk from her mother’s side and Scottish from her father’s. She’s a lifelong Northerner who is grateful to work and play on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, and səlil̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ Nation.
