We are beyond excited to announce that Kim Morrow will be joining our team on May 31, 2016! Originally from California, Kim has worked in the sustainability and climate fields in Nebraska for the past six years. She has experience in sustainability consulting, clean energy advocacy, faith-based climate advocacy, higher education, policy work and fundraising.

Prior to joining us, she served as Executive Director of Nebraska Interfaith Power & Light, a non-profit leading the faith community’s response to climate change. She also served as Climate Change Resource Specialist at the School of Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, partnering with Dr. Don Wilhite to deliver a series of sector-based roundtable discussions on the implications of climate change to Nebraska. In July 2015, she was honored at the White House as a “Champion of Change” for her efforts on climate change with the faith community.

Kim is passionate about finding smart, compassionate, and community-based solutions to the environmental challenges of our time. She is thrilled to join the team and looks forward to making great things happen in Nebraska and beyond.

Kim currently lives in Lincoln, and we’re excited to report that she’ll eventually be spending roughly half of her time there – consider this a Verdis expansion into the Lincoln market!

Kim lives with her two kids. When she’s not trying to save the world, she enjoys roller skating, ice skating, biking, walking and jogging. She has recently started playing guitar, and has an unusual delight with her backyard composter.
