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.

"With the help of VSS, you are empowered and encouraged to fight back and be pro-active. Then your conscience can be more at peace because you know you have taken some action to protest crimes inflicted on your loved one. It is sometimes your only consolation."

“The one takeaway for me in working with VSS is that it is a necessary organization. I know they are funded by grants and fundraisers but it’s something we need to make sure as a community that they have the funding needed because what they do for people in need doesn’t happen anywhere else. This is the only place that this happens and VSS helps with so many things.”

David Rose

Anchor, Q13 News and Host, Washington’s Most Wanted

“VSS is there when the unthinkable happens.  When a police officer knocks on your door and gives you tragic news, VSS helps navigate the court system, which can be very confusing. VSS is compassion, caring, and commitment. Commitment to once justice is done that victims and their families can move forward with their lives.”

Jennifer Gregerson

Mayor, City of Mukilteo

“VSS has been our partner in recovery and healing and a key part in what makes Mukilteo Strong. VSS has been a trusted advocate for the victims that have suffered so much in the community.  I’m so grateful to VSS as our partner in strength.”

Jon Nehring

Mayor, City of Marysville

“VSS is there for people in their darkest hour. At a time when they need an advocate and friend, VSS steps in to fill that gap and help them begin their journey back to some sense of normalcy.” 

Myrle Carner

Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound

“This thing about closure. There is never really closure in a victim’s life but VSS helps individuals to get closer to that and that’s critical because the cops and the judicial system just move on to another case because they don’t have time. Victims live with this trauma forever so VSS is with them for as long as they need the services. VSS takes the time, more importantly, they really care."
