As a Training and Development Manager for our Corporate Office in Tempe, AZ, Kim manages the design, development, implementation, and monitoring of all training and career development activities for Sunland. She leads training sessions for new employee orientation, company policies and procedures, and management development. We recently sat down with Kim and asked her a few questions to get to know her better.
What is your favorite song to blast on the stereo on a long road trip?
How do you pick just one! I am a lover of music. I will jump from one genre to the next and sing every song at the top of my lungs. I’m that girl in the car next to you using the steering wheel as a drum or guitar. My best air drum solo is to Phil Collins “In the Air Tonight.”
What is your favorite outdoor activity and why?
I grew up playing sports all my life and was blessed to have been a college student athlete. It’s really hard to pick just one because I’m currently playing indoor & outdoor soccer, Orange Theory Fitness and I do CrossFit. I also enjoy a round of golf on weekends.
What is the craziest/most dangerous thing you’ve ever done?
I’d say the “craziest” would be begging my way into the Toyota Touchdown Dance contest during halftime at an Arizona Cardinals game and winning, which sent me to the finals, again winning and walking away with a new Toyota Tundra! The most “dangerous” would be skydiving in Sedona. Would I do it again? Absolutely!
What is the most favorite place you’ve traveled to and why?
Ireland hands down! I spent 10 days driving around admiring the forty shades of green, visiting castles, staying in hostels, listening to live music and seeing Dave Matthews Band in concert (reason for the trip). The best part: the people. So proud to share the history of their families and pride in their country. It was fascinating how in tune they were with their roots. I hope to go back because there is so much more to see. Slainte!
