Kim has been a DaVita Labs teammate for over 12 years. As she explains, she’d always wanted to work in the medical field and was inspired to become a Med Tech (MT) when she met a friend who, like herself, is deaf and worked as a Med Tech. Discovering this new career path, Kim joined the Village as a MT in Microbiology. After a few years, she transferred to Hematology for 2 years, then back to Micro in her current role as a MT III. In her time with the Village, Kim has participated in Tour DaVita–a weekend-long bike race to support DaVita’s Bridge of Life–twice. She is also a 2021 graduate of the DaVita Labs leadership program DSSL.
