Born and raised in Northeastern Pennsylvania, Kim moved to Houston in 1983, where she began working as a registered Nurse. Nursing has been an amazing journey for her, giving the opportunity to work in a variety of settings, and meet the most amazing people along the way. She is Kaitlyn’s mom and the founder and President of Kaitkares. Early on she made a commitment to ensure that Kaitlyn and Joseph would not only be remembered, but that from this tragedy there would be a significant effort to increase fire safety awareness and advocacy, and ultimately fire code reform. This is the driving principle behind everything we do at Kaitkares.
