Throughout her life, community involvement, volunteerism and advocacy has been a major focus. She has been the recipient of many awards including most recently receiving the Henry Vlug Award in 2023 from the Canadian Association of the Deaf which recognizes political, legal, or advocacy action that has significantly increased the equality of Deaf Canadians and the NL Human Rights Award in 2022 for her contribution to advancing and furthering human rights in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Kim’s passion and commitment to public service and the community is rivaled only by her tenacity and work ethic. Most recently, she successfully pursued a six-year-long human rights complaint on behalf of her Deaf son Carter in the face of overwhelming odds against one of the largest public entities in the province.
