June Employee of the Month: Kimi Nolte
Kimi Nolte, Lead Victim Services Coordinator is our Employee of the Month for June. Kimi is always willing to step in and help any of her teammates with a cheerful, positive attitude. She takes the role of Lead very seriously. Additionally, Kimi is a very strong advocate for the clients she serves and she ensures their voices are heard and their hearts are supported when the unthinkable strikes.
Kimi was promoted to Lead Victim Services Coordinator recently, a position she earned after displaying a level head, common sense and a vast knowledge of the criminal justice process and victim rights. She not only oversees the other Victim Service Coordinators in the agency but provides training at the agency Core Training events and does community outreach. This year, Kimi is also coordinating the agency participation in many National Night Out events in the counties we serve. She recently tabled our first Missing and Unidentified Persons event in King County.
Of her leadership, staff comments include: “As a Lead Advocate, Kimi always makes herself available to review cases.” “If I don’t know the answer to something, I can always count on her to have the answer to my questions.” “Kimi always has a smile and energetic vibe. She jumps in to help wherever she can and makes a difference every day to those she helps.”
Kimi has a Masters of Public Health and a Masters of Social Work from the University of Missouri. She relocated here from Washington DC when she was hired by Victim Support Services. She has been working in victim advocacy for ten years, starting as a hospital advocate. Victim rights and making sure that victims are heard and validated is really important to her! In her off time she loves to travel and has been to Mexico, England, France, Spain, Netherlands, Iceland, the Czech Republic, Italy and Germany! She has been with Victim Support Services for a little over a year and she states “it’s the best job ever!”
Thank you Kimi for all your hard work and dedication to the clients we serve. You are certainly deserving of the nomination for Employee of the Month by your peers.
