Kim Green( More... )
Hi Everyone! I’m Kim Green, the Special Events Coordinator for the Diversity Center. I also work as a tutor is CFLAT so maybe you will recognize me from there. I’m a junior in the Vascular Ultrasound program, and when I’m not in the lab practicing my scanning, I enjoy reading, hanging out with my friends, and anything sports related. What attracted me to the DC was the open and accepting environment that it represents. It is a place where anyone can go without having to worry about feeling judged, or excluded. Being involved with the DC is also a great way to learn about other cultures, which I find vastly fascinating.
