Be a Part of the Conversation participates in “National Night Out,” an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live. We present a “Mock Teen Bedroom” which puts on display some items that parents might not realize are indications of drug or alcohol use. Our goal is to help parents become more tuned in to the subtle hints that their son or daughter may be engaging in substance use in their home.
Kim's Certified Family Recovery Specialist (CFRS) credential was created for adults who have been directly impacted by another person's substance use disorder. The CFRS shares their lived experience with other families to provide recovery support services. A CFRS is trained to help families move into and through the recovery process.
With more than 25 years of experience in graphics and marketing, Kim had a freelance graphic design business and was the Marketing Coordinator of the Hatboro-Horsham Educational Foundation after several years as a member of their Board of Directors. Today she is happy to put all that creative energy into spreading the word about Be a Part of the Conversation.
Kim earned a Bachelor of Science in Journalism at West Virginia University, with a concentration in public relations. She was proud to serve as WVU's student body president. Kim started out as an advertising account executive at a newspaper, then learned the graphic design trade while working with her mentor and friend, Chuck Moran, at his design firm in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Kim currently lives in Newtown Square, Delaware County, Pennsylvania. She previously lived in Horsham Township for 22 years, where she and Michael raised two wonderful children who support this amazing journey she has embarked upon.
